Diva Opera presents chamber opera at its best.

Since Bryan Evans and Anne Marabini Young founded Diva Opera in 1997, the company has earned an unrivalled reputation within the operatic world and beyond.

Giving over 50 performances annually, we are now ambassadors for chamber opera internationally. Our acclaimed productions tour throughout the UK and Europe and have been seen as far afield as Russia, Japan and South Africa.

All of our works are presented in spectacular period costume and sung in their original language, with surtitles in English or French if required. With two new fully staged productions each year, plus a wide range of concert programmes, we maintain a versatility and commitment to reinvigorating classic works for today’s audience.

Our 2018 season includes Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail and J Strauss’s Die Fledermaus. Visit our ‘What’s On’ page for details of where you can see them.

WHAT’S ON

diva quoteI would like to congratulate Diva Opera as they celebrate 22 years of performing top quality opera throughout the UK and internationally. From the outset, Anne and Bryan were determined to attain the highest possible standards in every facet of performance, from exemplary casting to fastidious and imaginative musical preparation and intensive language coaching.

Diva Opera provides a benchmark for any small opera company. It has afforded huge opportunities to aspiring and seasoned singers: being part of a caring and nurturing company, with its great attention to detail, is the most wonderful support any singer could have. Peter Coleman Wright AO

I had the most wonderful experience with Diva Opera, and witnessed their splendid performance of La Cenerentola at La Fenice Opera House in Venice. Bravissimo! A terrific organisation

The whole of this bubbling little world is perfectly synchronised and forms a universe of beautiful voices mostly emerging from the most prestigious musical academies of Britain. A real treat receiving a well deserved and never ending standing ovation
