Charity description

Opera Prelude logo
Opera Prelude supports the early career development of some of the country's finest young singers, hosting lecture recitals, concerts, operas and masterclasses in prestigious and historic locations. We also run "See Golden Days" an inter-generational opera project performing free admission concerts in elderly care homes.

We’re a small charity, passionate about opera with the needs of young singers at the heart of what we do.We believe that opera is for everyone! Our affordable, friendly and inclusive events form a bridge across the footlights, introducing you to young opera singers and their diverse enriching art form.

We believe in giving young singers a start. Whilst there are more Young Artists Programmes than ever, it has never been harder for young singers to break into the operatic profession. For those that don’t get a place on one of these programmes it is an expensive business to attract the attention of an agent or casting director; many singers even resort to paying smaller companies for the chance to perform principal roles. In addition a young singer still has to continue with private singing lessons, pay entry fees and travel to competitions and auditions as well as find money for recordings and websites.

If you would like to champion our work, please donate now.
