OUR STORY

The Cumbria Opera Group (formerly known as the Eden Valley Opera Company), 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. Cumbria has historically been a place where opera hasn't taken place, meaning that Cumbrians have been forced to travel long distances in order to witness excellent performances. For the elderly and disabled, this can be difficult.

The Cumbria Opera Group believes that opera should be able to happen everywhere, regardless of a place's rural isolation or economic situation. 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 stops, but an area in which it flourishes.


Having staged three critically-acclaimed operas, we're now planning our 2020 Opera Festival which will work hand in hand with our education initiative COGnitive Learning.
