The Cambridge University Opera Society (CUOS) exists chiefly to facilitate student operatic productions in Cambridge. Every year CUOS stages a wide variety of operas in a number of different venues around Cambridge, putting on productions at least once a term. Our Michaelmas and May Week shows vary in content and style, however, our biggest event is the Lent Term Mainshow. This is a large-scale production performed in West Road Concert Hall in February, which last year was Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Anyone is welcome to apply to take part in CUOS shows and there are a wide variety of roles available from production team to chorus, principal cast and orchestra. Opportunities for composers are also a new regular feature of our season with our student composed Opera Shorts towards the end of Lent term.
CUOS welcomes all to get involved with productions – those wishing to sing will need to audition, but there are plenty of production and backstage roles available for most productions.
Please keep an eye out for the announcement of next year’s shows soon!
