The annual Blackheath Halls Community Opera is a successful project that has been running since 2007. Blackheath Halls Opera is proud of its programme of ambitious and creative opera projects offering people of all ages from across the London Boroughs of Greenwich, Lewisham and beyond, a unique opportunity to take part in high-quality, live music making alongside a professional cast of soloists and production teams.
"A life-affirming and life-changing experience. Everyone should take part!"
"Blackheath Halls Opera is the best thing about the summer in South East London."
This project is supported by a broad range of both professional trusts and foundations and individuals as well as Arts Council England and we continue to raise crucial funds throughout the year for both the Children's and Community Operas.
The annual Opera Gala Night 2018 is our hugely popular fundraising event for the Operas.
