Garden Opera

On Site Opera is a versatile opera company performing an array of professional, innovative programmes - Garden Opera. Our Garden Operas allow you the thrill and spectacle of hearing opera in your backyard. Our operation for this format is simple and uncomplicated. We will provide an operatic performance by a classicallytrained singer for small groups with a full orchestral arrangement, weather proof stage and a backdrop of La Scala!

All our performers have been trained at the three major international conservatoires of London, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music.

We are not only an opera company; we have many years experience in event management. We can fulfill any request for opera music; we are also able to provide the event itself should you require a full programme of structures, transportation, staffing and organisation.


Singers & Productions

Our productions are sung by some of the finest singers and are led by highly regarded soprano Tarsha Cole LRAM ARCM who has performed in prestigious productions at such venues as the English National Opera, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, the Paris Chatelet, Glastonbury and Windsor Castle. Tarsha also had the honour of singing the lead at the opening of the New National Opera House in Ho Chi Minh City.

Many of the singers for On Site Opera have performed for the major British opera companies including the ENO, WNO, Opera North and Glyndebourne. Opera is a powerful medium, offering a touch of class, often providing an unforgettable, lingering experience. On Site Opera can perform at a range of venues and for a variety of events and special occasions.


The Format

For a small Garden Opera, we would suggest a 20ft x 20ft Marquee with 32 seated guests. The package would include tables, chairs, flooring and uplighters. Therefore, your event would have ultimate flexibility to enjoy a Garden Opera and then, if so required, to transform the existing marquee into a lunch or dinner venue.

We will provide an operatic performance by a classically trained singer with a full orchestral arrangement, stage and even a backdrop of La Scala if required!

We use Capri marquees which are unique and spacious; the design eliminates ropes and guy lines maximising your space and offers great flexibility. These marquees can be decorated with ivy garland to go over the arches of the marquee and the pea lights look wonderful wrapped around the poles. They look wonderfully elegant open sided simply allowing guests to breeze in and out, but all marquees do come with a choice of detachable clear or plain white side walls, they are simple to fit and can close off the marquee keeping the chill off.
