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, 24 years ago.

Sixteen productions, 54 performances and thousands of hours of professional and voluntary effort later, Wedmore Opera has produced its latest opera – Eleanor Vale - a new commission from composer John Barber and librettist Peter Cann to critical acclaim.

Latest news!

We are delighted to report that we have recently finished paying off our financial shortfall. This allows us to take stock and start planning for the future. A heart-felt THANK YOU to our financial supporters and to all who contributed to the efforts of the past year.

In July 2015, funds permitting, we plan to perform Carmen in a newly designed theatre tent; local singers will be invited to audition for some solo roles.

9-12 July 2014 will see performances of Purcell's tragic love story Dido and Aeneas. This will be in Wedmore Village Hall, followed by a festive summer meal. To make sure you're informed when tickets are available for this, contact us

The Swan in Wedmore is kindly hosting a series of events in the coming year in support of Wedmore Opera. Further information is available,
