Formed in 1959, New Opera Company, Derby is the only group performing grand opera locally.
The company’s repertoire also includes operettas and other types of choral music which are performed regularly in concerts. New members of all ages are welcomed, whether to sing or to assist in mounting productions on stage by making costumes, scenery or properties. The company rehearses in Derby on Wednesday evenings and performs in Derby or at venues in Derbyshire or other neighbouring counties.
