Who is Somerset Opera?


Somerset Opera was founded in 1974 by Brian Cresswell. We are a registered charity and based in Taunton. We mount our own productions performed by our own members and regularly welcome guests who, once they appear, often return. Our main opera production each year is invariably performed in full costume with orchestra. In addition we sing concert performances of operas and choral works and, as SOG on Tour, perform across the county in forms ranging from complete G&S productions to concert parties.
