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 presents a folk version of the classic G&S Ruddygore, due to be performed in the Annex Theatre Southampton. You can reserve your tickets here.

In June 2018, LOpSoc brings G&S's Patience forward in time to the early 2000's! Our chorus is not auditioned, anyone can join regardless of previous experience on stage. More information on how to join coming soon.

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