Opera on Location: a profile

Updated: Mar 28

Ahead of our Hallam Operatic concert we take a little look at our partners – Sheffield-based opera company Opera on Location and their soloists

 

After gaining charitable status in June 2020, Opera on Location continue to be committed to bringing innovatively staged, high quality, affordable opera to Sheffield and South Yorkshire. As part of Opera on Location’s commitment to making opera more accessible, productions are always sung in English with newly commissioned librettos which reflect the modern-day world.


Opera on Location have five soloists joining Hallam Sinfonia:



Victoria Gray (Mezzo)

Most looking forward to singing...

Carmen (Bizet)

"It's such an iconic role for mezzo-soprano and I'm delighted to be able to become the wanton songstress for the evening"

Rachel Abbot (Soprano)

Most looking forward to singing...

Dich Teure Halle from Tannhäuser (Wagner)

"I'm really looking forward to performing this for the first time with an orchestra - being able to appreciate the exciting and colourful introduction"

Thomas Asher (Baritone)

Most looking forward to singing...

Largo Al Factorum from the Barber of Seville (Rossini)

"such a fun moment from a fun opera and Rossini's music is always a delight for performer and audience alike!"

Gareth Lloyd (Tenor)

Most looking forward to singing...

Morgenlich Leuchtend from Der Meistersinger von Nürnberg (Wagner)

"I'm excited to be performing with Hallam Sinfonia again after singing in the Beethoven 9 Concert in 2019."
