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 2018, LOpSoc performed a folk version of the classic G&S Ruddygore in the Annex Theatre Southampton.

In June 2018, LOpSoc brought G&S's Patience forward in time to the early 2000's!

Finally, on the 16th of August 2018 we take Patience on tour to the 25th International G&S Festival, performing in the Harrogate Theatre at 2:30pm.

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