"Opera Restor'd is a touring company specialising in seventeenth and eighteenth century English opera and music theatre.
These centuries provided a wealth of attractive, accessible music which is not well known yet part of our musical heritage and still entertaining today. Supported by the expertise of specialists in the field, yet always bearing in mind the expectations of modern audiences, the company seeks to bring this repertory to a wide audience both at home and abroad.
In recent years we have focused on small-scale, fully-staged, flexible productions of eighteenth century works from both England and Europe, sung in English and supported by a small orchestra.
The company has performed in theatres, concert halls, historic buildings and major festival venues throughout Britain and has toured to France, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey. Since its creation in 1986 the company has attracted considerable acclaim for re-creating and making accessible the rich musical life of earlier centuries.
Opera Restor'd was the first opera Company to tour on the Early Music Network, has provided music and performers for the film Princess Caraboo and featured in the BBC Radio series Opera Out and About. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
