The Society is always interested in welcoming new members. Opera Worcester is committed to the very highest production values so there are always numerous opportunities for non-performers.

You could be part of the team involved in bringing a first-class production to the stage.  We need people to help with front-of house activities, assisting with props, costumes, stage management, publicity or serving on the committee. These wide range of supporting roles are as vital as the people on the stage.

Opera Worcester is now looking for more performers. We rehearse 7.30pm Monday evenings at St Mark Church Hall, Bath Road, Worcester WR5 3DW.

Why not challenge yourself? Come along and enjoy a warm welcome

If you are interested in being involved in any way, please email our Membership Secretary Patricia Jukes at membership@operaworcester.uk or complete the online membership form here
