Known for their entertaining approach to opera, Hatstand Opera have delighted packed audiences in castles, churches, National Trust properties, village halls, art galleries, stately homes, gardens and theatres alike. With a ‘go-anywhere’ policy, Hatstand have performed for 7000 people for the National Trust, sung under 17th century Dutch masters at the National Gallery, broadcast live on Classic FM and featured on Radio 4, and even shared the bill with Julio Iglesias at a vineyard in Western Australia!

Hatstand Opera soloists are highly experienced performers, with a special skill in performing close-up to any audience. Hatstand's singers have worked with most of the UK companies and many more beyond, but they all return to work with Hatstand when they can - because they love it!

Opera can be Murder
A tongue in cheek look at how opera dispatches its heroes and villains, in extracts by Verdi, Donizetti, Mozart and more.

All our performances are opera highlights shows, a chocolate-box assortment of great scenes and arias, and like the best designer chocolate assortments, you never really know what’s in the box until you’ve bought it and lifted the lid!
