Welcome to Wedmore Opera Facebook

A small group of people, with a wild idea and the skill to realise it. That’s how Wedmore Opera began, 26 years ago. Seventeen productions, 57 performances and thousands of hours of professional and voluntary effort later, preparations for our new production of Carmen in July 2015 are under way.

The venue will be a specially designed theatre tent with full blackout, a built-in lighting rig, raked seating, warmth and a perfect view of the stage, wherever you are sitting. The stage, the dressing rooms and the bar will all be under one roof, so it won't, matter what the weather throws at us!

With professional singers in the lead roles, members of Wedmore Opera in every other role and a small but perfectly formed professional orchestra, Carmen wil open on Wednesday 8th July and play again on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th. On Thursday 9th July, there will be 'something completely different'. Revisit this page in the new year for more news of the programme and to reserve your tickets.

“It was just such fun...I didn’t realise I could sound so good."

Opera singer and Director of Music at Millfield Julian Jensen returns to Wedmore Village Hall to lead a session on how we sing and how we can sing better. He combines fun and technique in a truly inspirational way.

Everyone is welcome - every age, every level of experience, every musical taste. You don't need to be able to read music. If you like singing, or would just like to have a go, come and join us.

One of last year's participants said: “I learnt so much in that session. It was mind-blowing!"

To reserve your place, call Peter or Marylin on 01934 712761. The cost is £10 (£5 for students), including a light lunch.
