A Midsummer Night's Dream (2013), Opera on Location

About Us

Formed in 2013, Opera on Location is a vibrant Opera company based in Sheffield with one simple aim: to perform exciting site-specific opera.

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. 

Our mission


We are passionate about tearing up the misconceptions often associated with opera and showcasing that this art form is just as relevant today as at its inception, proving it is something everyone can enjoy.

Our productions are sung in English with new, modern and relevant translations. As the name suggests, our full-scale summer productions are site specific. We pride ourselves on being the only opera company outside of London to include this as part of our mission.

We provide vital opportunities for young professionals at the beginning of their careers without compromising on quality and are delighted to serve South Yorkshire as the region’s only resident professional opera company. 

Support us

Opera on Location is a small organisation with big ambitions. During these unprecedented times we are relying heavily on the support of our audience. Whether you are able to support us by making a donation or by joining our volunteer scheme, it will help us to make more work and spread the joy of opera to more people, for which we are hugely grateful.
