Culture in Unexpected Places: Opera Minima

Firstly, please will everyone outside a 50 mile radius of Market Harborough please accept my apologies for this item.  It is a shameless plug for the  wonderful OPERA MINIMA who are based at Great Easton in Leicestershire.

OPERA MINIMA was created in 1999 and became a registered charitable trust in 2001.   The charity’s objectives are:

Broaden AppealTo broaden the appeal of opera

CoachingTo give coaching and performing experience to young professional singers

InsightTo give young people a first hand insight into the art form

Opera Minima offers a variety of opera-based events, including workshops, masterclasses and a range of style of performance from themed programmes to semi-staged double or triple bills, semi-staged with piano accompaniment.

Performances take place in The Old Corset Factory in Great Easton in Leicestershire (between Corby and Market Harborough) and in a variety of other venues and often include supper as well!

I strongly urge you to get some tickets and enjoy a bit of culture on your doorstep, although I am reliably informed that they have had people coming from Northumberland, Devon and Sussex to their shows, who then make a weekend of it.  Contact details are on the poster below.

  1. Is Opera Minima like Reduced Shakespeare? Tosca in a phone box? Sorry. I’m sure they’re brilliant whatever size they are.
