Thrapston Plaza Opera

Northamptonshire's Opera Company


Meet Thrapston Plaza Opera

Since 2010, Thrapston Plaza Opera has been putting on large scale operas 

sung in English with live orchestral accompaniment. 

The aim is to present a good quality production for and involving 

the local community.

Open auditions are held in the Plaza every year  to select the main roles with soloists coming from the local area, Birmingham, Peterborough, London, Cambridge and the Music Colleges.

The chorus is not auditioned and is open to everyone.

Chorus members who come from Thrapston and beyond rehearse in the St.James' Church Hall from 7.30 - 9.30pm on Tuesday evenings from September to February.

Our aim is to offer audiences a chance to experience grand opera in Thrapston at affordable prices.
