About us

In compliance with COVID-19 regulations, we will be auditioning online this year.


Edinburgh's student-led opera company, celebrating over 50 years of performance. Each year we aim to stage an opera in March, and one as part of the Fringe Festival, with other highlights being masterclasses with directors, busking on the Royal Mile, and getting involved in our community outreach program. After auditioning for our returning musical director Will Conway, our singers have weekly evening rehearsals. Our society aims to bridge the gap between amateur and professional opera, encouraging people with any level of experience to join. Members include undergraduates of French, Medicine, Music, freelance singers, and teachers.


President's Welcome: I never knew that I could find such a diverse group of people who share a passion for opera. We are the proof that it is not an outdated form of music, and regardless of whether our members join with the intention of becoming professional singers or not, we uphold the quality that is expected of traditional opera.
