Onwards and North-Westwards!


This summer, prepare for GO WILDERNESS!

This August, GO OPERA will be packing their many things and re-locating to a verdant, fairytale landscape at Wilderness Festival.

From the 12th – 14th August, 2011, Wilderness will be providing happy campers with a smörgåsbord of performances, fireside banquets and theatrical spectaculars set amongst the stunning lakes and meadows of the ancient Wychwood Forest.

Curated by the organisers of Secret Garden Party and Lovebox (so you know it’s good…), Wilderness will be a weekend packed with inspiration for all you free-spirited festival lovers and will embrace the best of the best in music, food, theatre, literary debate and outdoor pursuits.

GO OPERA will be performing excerpts of our sell-out show, GO TRAVIATA!, in various different guises and locations across the weekend – so we do hope you’ll join us and have a sing along (or a hum along, or just come along).

To get your tickets, follow THIS link – they start from a mere £27.50 for a day ticket and £49.50 for the weekend (plus booking fee). Proper bargain!

Check out the Wilderness Video to give you a flavour of the good times to come and we’ll see you in August!

What a Folly!


This Friday 24th June, GO OPERA is proud to announce that they will be teaming up with the creators of last year’s hugely successful Cineroleum project to perform a short excerpt of GO TRAVIATA at the opening night of their Folly for a Flyover Festival!

Check out this June/July's must-see event!

The wonderful people at Folly for a Flyover will host a six week programme of cinema, performance and play, including boat tours, screenings and drop-in workshops,  produced by Assemble CIC in conjunction with CREATE 2011 and The Barbican Art Gallery.

GO has also joined forces with filmmaker Tom Chick, who will be providing a custom-made, cinematic translation to accompany the performance.

We are so excited to be able to return to The Wick so soon after the final performance of our as it proved to be (as we suspected it would) such a fertile and creative stomping ground for new and exciting events. Without a shadow of a doubt, Folly For a Flyover will prove to be up there with some of the best, most varied and interesting projects to see there this summer.

So get on down there!
