Friends of HGO

Help Us Make It Happen

HGO is unique – and you can have a part in our story.

We stage first-class opera, with vibrant young singers and live orchestra,  twice a year in London  at affordable prices . Our standards of singing, acting,  playing and production, coupled with the extraordinary intimacy of our venues brings opera  to life – in a way that even major opera houses cannot achieve.

We provide opportunities for young singers – the professionals of the future – to perform roles that, early in their careers, they couldn’t be given in the big opera companies. Many are recent graduates from music college or students approaching the end of their course. They are hungry for experience in staged productions of our quality and excitement,  and they value the boost that a major role with HGO can give them on their way to a successful career.

As a Friend you can help to make this possible and also participate in a variety of additional events including open rehearsals, concerts, talks, masterclasses and celebrity occasions. And you will get priority booking
