Blackheath Halls Opera has been producing operas annually since 2007, involving members of our community, professional opera singers and production teams and students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire. It is a really unique project that brings together musicians of all walks of life to create high-quality operas accompanied by a full orchestra.
Blackheath Halls Opera 2023
Our Community Opera this year will be Handel’s Semele. Performed very little during Handel’s lifetime, the opera now enjoys regular performances on opera stages worldwide. With it’s mythological story and rousing chorus numbers, it is the perfect fit for our Blackheath Halls Opera projects. We are very excited to welcome back seasoned Blackheath Halls Opera Director, Harry Fehr alongside Chris Stark as Musical Director.
