Welcome to Wedmore Opera

Thank you to everyone who supported our production of Carmen in July 2015, either as performers, helpers or audience. We are deeply grateful to our loyal audiences who attended any of the events in the Theatre Tent and we've received such great feedback for the performances.

We received many positive comments and excellent feedback about Carmen, together with our special events with Claire Teal and Marcus Brigstocke staged in our huge circus-style tent. A newspaper reviewer summed up the whole project as ‘Bonkers but Brilliant’!

As always, our thanks go to our President Mark Hamlin and our Benefactors, Friends and Patrons whose financial support has been vital. Want to join this group? Contact Us

Future events:

7th, 8th, 9th July 2016. Wedmore Opera presents "A Night at the Movies"

Picture the scene...the red carpet, our audience dressed to impress, paparazzi bulbs flashing as they arrive to drink Martinis, shaken not stirred.  They are shown to their tables, think Ronnie Scott's, the lights go down, the show begins.  A selection of movie operatic classics, some sung by our glamorous chorus, seething in sequins and Dinner jackets, some performed by soloists and smaller ensembles, draped across a grand piano.  The songs will be linked with a narrative and a backdrop of movie stills.  When the music tops, the food is served, the bar jumps into life. Hedonism is the name of the game. Featuring Richard Lennox at the grand piano.

Tickets will be available in early March both online and from our Box Office and there will be a priority booking period for Benefactors, Friends and Patrons.

Syrinx wind & piano ensemble Wedmore Village Hall on Friday, April 29th 2016

We are delighted that the Syrinx wind & piano ensemble will return to Wedmore Village Hall on Friday, April 29th, Their last visit attracted a large audience, so we expect tickets to go quickly when they are on sale.
