HGO brings live opera, fully staged with orchestra, at reasonable prices to the people of north London and offers performance opportunity and training to young singers. We have been recognised by critics as one of the finest of small opera companies. We have won, and on other occasions been nominated for, the Offie for best opera production – an award for the best production outside the West End.
We stage our operas twice a year, May and November, in the excellent theatre at the Jacksons Lane centre in Archway Road, a vibrant performance venue. On this website you can see reviews of past productions, learn of upcoming operas and concerts, buy tickets – and even sign up as a Friend of HGO
