Welcome to W11 Opera

In response to the current Covid-19 pandemic W11 Opera has moved online this year.  This unique production offers our young cast (9-18yrs) a platform to interact, rehearse, devise, create, sing, dance, act & perform in a safe, creative environment, which culminates in a production premiere in December.

**ANNOUNCEMENT**

JUKEBOX Film Premiere

W11 Opera’s online production, conceived by director Susan Moore, is an opera which has been rehearsed completely online with a cast of thirty young people from all over London.  It celebrates forty-nine years of operas commissioned by the company, using songs interwoven with original dialogue, illustrated by Chris Glynn, and edited into an hour length film by Amy Banks. Alastair Chilvers returns as Musical Director and Maggie Rawlinson as Choreographer.

The streamed premiere of the JUKEBOX film will take place on Sunday 13th December 2020 at 7pm.
