Born out of a need to keep performing live music even in a pandemic
LOC was formed in the summer of 2020 to give fellow musicians and international opera singers who had lost their work to the Covid pandemic the opportunity to keep performing and to give music lovers a first class treat after a summer devoid of live concerts.
Following the critically acclaimed and sold-out inaugural production of Tristan und Isolde in 2020, the Company went on to perform a semi-staged chamber arrangement of Die Walküre in July 2021 to a delighted audience of Wagner opera lovers.
The London Opera Company will perform Tristan und Isolde in concert on 29th October 2022 at St John’s Smith Square. The semi-staged Tristan und Isolde will feature a world class cast of singers and musical direction by Peter Selwyn, who has assisted on Bayreuth and Royal Opera House Covent Garden productions of The Ring Cycle.
“I have rarely known any performance, even of this opera, to carry such an overwhelming emotional payload… If this is a taste of their quality, I want to see more of their work, soon.” (Wagner News)
