Opera Nova based in the Tees Valley in the North East of England performs opera music at a variety of venues throughout the region.

Calling All Singers

Opera Nova still has places for singers in all voice parts (especially tenors and baritones) to take part in our light hearted Spring 2024 concert series ‘Partytime!’ – a selection of fun choruses and ensembles from opera and operetta, including songs from The Merry Widow. (We plan to present The Merry Widow as our semi-staged production for 2024.)

November Rehearsals – Everyone Welcome

November rehearsals for “Partytime!” will be open to all, led by our Musical Director, Marco Romano. Copies of all music will be provided – sight reading is not required. Come along and give us a try!
