Welcome to our web site.
Regents Opera was established in 2012 building on the success of Opera A La Carte. While Opera a La Carte continues to focuses on private and corporate tailor made entertainment, Regents Opera concentrates on larger-scale productions in a wide variety of venues complemented by its flexible orchestra The Regents Consort.

Productions for 2019 / 2020
Puccini’s Tosca is as much a thriller as a tragedy. Regents Opera will present the story in a ‘film noir’ style, making the most of the rich mix of politics, religion, torture, blackmail, attempted rape, murder, execution and suicide. Who could want more for an evening’s entertainment?
Sex, celebrity, scandal…some things never change! Verdi’s La traviata is a star-crossed story of courtesan Violetta’s passionate affair with a young bourgeois Alfredo whom she is forced to leave to avoid tarnishing his family’s reputation. First performed in Venice in 1853, it was originally set in 1700 due to the censors’ demands. This production moves to the 1930s.
