Welcome to LOpSoc, the award-winning University of Southampton Light Opera Society. We are a friendly group with a strong community of members who all share a great enthusiasm for our work, and we put on at least two shows and a tour each academic year. We also have regular socials, workshops for members and recitals within the society. Our chorus is not auditioned, everyone is welcome to join us 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. Tickets will be available early in 2018, watch this space.

In June 2018, LOpSoc brings G&S's Patience forward in time to the early 2000's! Watch this space for more information about rehearsals and principal cast auditions.

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