Formed in 1995, Riverside Opera aims to put Opera at the heart of our Community. At its heart is a chorus of over 30 enthusiastic amateur singers led by our professional and energetic Music Director, Sam Evans.
Based in Kingston upon Thames, we welcome new singers to the Chorus and to the world of opera. We are proud to provide an opportunity for young soloists, often near the beginning of their career, to work with the professional artistic staff we invite for each opera we perform. Most years we perform two concerts and one fully staged opera.
Why not join us on stage?

Riverside Opera is raising money from our supporters towards the training of a few talented student orchestral players. Each apprentice will have a mentor and together with professional players will have the experience of performing in a professional theatre for our May production.
The Office for Civil Society has recently made funds available to match each £10 donation through http://localgiving.com/gyt . Almost 40% of the £500,000 available was 'matched' in the first week so there is a certain urgency!
To make a £10 donation, please click on the Local Giving logo above, register and search for Riverside Opera.
