La bohéme, Opera on Location

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.

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. 

We would definitely recommend volunteering as a way of actively supporting Sheffield’s increasingly rich cultural scene
