Welcome to W11 Opera

In 2020, responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, W11 Opera moved their production completely online.  This unique project offered the young cast (9-18yrs) a platform to interact, rehearse, devise, create, sing, dance, act & perform in a safe, creative environment, which culminated in a production premiere in December.
