“For anyone wanting a performer’s eye view of opera, Opera Prelude is ideal: lecture demonstrations by professional singers offering engaging insights on repertory and technique.” 

Country Life Magazine 

Welcome to the online home of Opera Prelude, a small charity supporting young opera singers and committed to bringing opera to new audiences.


CANCELLATIONS: ALL proceeds from ticket sales and donations are used for the benefit of our young singers. Opera Prelude supports and nurtures young singers through the developmental stages of their career.

We regret that we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges once you have purchased your ticket unless the lecturer cancels in which case you will be refunded in full.  Opera Prelude reserves the right to cancel or change lecturers or lecture titles at short notice.

Refunds will only be given upon a cancellation on our part. Thank you for your understanding!

GIFT AID: All ticket prices include a variable, non obligatory donation element, without which we are unable to help our singers further their careers with mini grants through our Singer’s Friends Fund. If you would like to know more about how we use Gift Aid donations to support our young singers or to pay a different amount, do get in touch.
