Company type Repertoire Season Location
Opera Training Main course and annual production: July East Sussex

OperaCoast was established in 2011 to provide upcoming singers and musicians with performing experience. The company runs courses and workshops which attract participants from all over the UK and from abroad and aims to work with singers to develop a deeper understanding of the emotional content of opera and art song.

  • OperaCoast Summer Course – an annual opera course for singers exploring one opera in one weekend.
  • Sing Russian – a course designed to enable non-Russian speaking singers to work on Russian vocal repertoire.
  • Matter of Perception – a community project aiming to improve confidence, presentation and communication through the power of a human voice.
  • OperaCoast Interlude – a project where the best soloists are given a chance to introduce various vocal music to the new audiences in different locations in Sussex and London.

One of the company’s aspirations is to bring opera and classical vocal performance not only to an audience of classical music lovers, but to people who are not always familiar with the genre. They also aim to inspire a higher level of engagement with the classical genre amongst younger generations.
