Carmen-Elektra

London

Contact e.opera@gmail.com or info
Carmen Elektra represents not just an opera company but a whole new approach to the genre.
Our aim is to rehabilitate opera by dispensing of its many cultural and aesthetic trappings and focusing on productions that are relevant to youth and popular cultures as well as the culture of contemporary art music.
To this end, Carmen Elektra has developed the ‘opera clubnight’ - an evening of short, accessible and engaging operas interspersed with DJ sets of multi-genre electronic and experimental music, and inspired by a unique and unconventional performance location.
This format can act as an impetus to re-discover the theatrical potential of familiar or forgotten works for a new venue and a new audience.
The opera clubnight demands creativity and innovation in its production and presentation, whilst simultaneously challenging ideas surrounding genre, performance and society in both performers and audience.
Rather than trying to wring contemporary relevance from a pre-existent repertoire, we focus on alternative, modern works, in English, which will work effectively in unconventional stagings and appeal to young and non-‘initiated’ audiences.
We believe that, of all contemporary art music, it is opera that has the most immediate interdisciplinary appeal and the greatest potential to engage with today’s broader artistic and cultural climate.

General Enquiries: centrestagetheatrelondon@gmail.com
Entertaining London for half a century
We are Centre Stage, a central London based theatre company that has been entertaining audiences with musicals and cabarets for almost 50 years. We are looking forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2016!
An amateur society, we first began life as a light opera company in 1966. Since then we have had a few changes in name, focus, and cast but we have kept the same entertaining spirit! A number of people have said that our shows are more 'entertaining' than most professional shows in the West End, but we'll leave that for our audience to decide!
We're also a sociable bunch and many people have met life-long friends - and quite a few partners - in our shows.
We put on two major musical theatre productions a year, at The Bridewell Theatre just off Fleet Street. Our rehearsal venue is currently on Chancery Lane. We also produce a number of smaller cabarets, and hold private masterclasses for our members. And of course, we are famed for our fabulous socials! Recent productions include ‘High Society’, ‘Moby Dick! The Musical’, ‘How To Succeed In Business (without really trying)’, ‘Our House’ and ‘Zanna, Don’t!’..

Now in its sixth year, Charles Court Opera has produced a wide range of work including their critically acclaimed Gilbert & Sullivan productions, opera, music theatre, contemporary music events, education projects and their legendary 'off-piste' boutique pantomimes, They have performed across the UK in venues ranging from London's pub theatres to the National concert hall in Dublin and have toured to France, Ireland, Spain and the USA.
Unique to the company is their collaboration with the Eaton-Young Piano Duo (Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, St-Martin-in-the-fields) who arrange the orchestral scores complete for piano four hands or two pianos, thereby allowing performances in venues previously inaccessible for opera and introducing them to wider audiences without having to compromise the musical substance.

c/o Islington Central Library, 2 Fieldway Crescent, London N5 1PF

Company Three creates a space in which young people can talk to adults, and in which adults will really listen.
Originally formed as Islington Community Theatre in 2008, we are a company of 75 young people aged 11-19. We make theatre through long-term, intensive collaboration between our members and professional theatre-makers.
We're based in Islington, North London, one of the most diverse and unequal boroughs in the UK.
All of our members are nominated or referred to us by local teachers, youth workers and social workers as young people who are particularly likely to benefit from our work.
Our plays are part of ongoing conversation about what it means to be a teenager. We train our members as theatre-makers, helping them to understand themselves and the world around them, and to create work that allows them to express who they are.
We make our plays through a process of research and development, early-stage scratch (experimental performances) and professional productions.
Our work has been seen at the National Theatre, at the Royal Albert Hall, on Channel 4 and the BBC. We do most of our early stage work in London's exceptional youth arts hub, Platform.

Co-Opera

South East London

Co-Opera Co. is an innovative opera company which has at its heart the welfare and promotion of professional opera singers and orchestral players in the early stages of their careers, post-graduates nearing the conclusion of their course, budding conductors, directors, répétiteurs and people working towards a career in the technical side of the operatic profession.
Co-Opera Co. was founded by Soprano Kate Flowers and Lighting Designer Paul Need and developed from their realisation that the career path of young singers entering the operatic profession today is severely hampered by the absence of the kind of small prestigious companies which were prevalent in the 1970’s and 80’s. It was possible at that time for singers straight from college to work alongside seasoned professionals, in top class productions in major venues, learning invaluable lessons by watching and working with experienced artists - earning whilst learning. Of course there are still some opportunities for emerging artists to do this but they are rare, and with so many singers entering the market place each year, unfortunately supply is outstripping demand.
So in 2008 Kate and Paul decided they should do something about it. They gathered together over 50 eminent professionals from every area of the profession; all personal friends and all of whom feel passionately that it is their duty to pass on their expertise to the next generation.
Co-Opera Co. was formed. Singers helping singers, musicians helping musicians.
