CUMBRIA OPERA GROUP

'Truly a Hidden Gem'

The Cumbria Opera Group was founded in 2016 in order to bring high-quality opera closer to the residents of Cumbria, and to educate young Cumbrians in the arts. Cumbrians have historically had to travel long distances in order to witness excellent opera. Astronomical ticket prices and surtitles further make opera seem elitist and inaccessible.

We believe that opera is relevant and necessary in the contemporary arts scene, and should happen everywhere, regardless of rural isolation or existing access. Cumbria is a county that has historically inspired some of Britain's finest poetry, art, and music, and should never be a place where opera is shut out, but an area in which it flourishes.
