Welcome to LOpSoc, the award-winning University of Southampton Light Opera Society. We are a friendly group with a strong, enthusiastic community of present and past members. We put on at least two shows and one tour each academic year, being regular participants in the International G&S UniFestival. We also have regular socials, workshops for members and recitals within the society. Our chorus is not auditioned, everyone is welcome to join our productions regardless of previous experience. Our members also have the opportunity to audition for lead roles, be part of production teams, join our orchestra and much more!

In February 2020 we brought an old favourite of H.M.S. Pinafore in all its Victorian Era glory to The Annex Theatre!

The 27th International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival has been cancelled due to the global outbreak of COVID-19. Without the funding from this year's ticket sales the Festival will have to shut its doors for good. Donate to the International G&S Festival here!

This year, we will be conducting weekly online rehearsals over the winter months in preparation for a Spring Concert. We'll be learning a brand new G&S medley as well as excepts from Orpheus in the Underworld and Candide!

If you would like to sponsor us, please contact the LOpSoc committee.
