Welcome to LOpSoc, the 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, we bring to you a folk version of the classic G&S Ruddygore, due to be performed in the Annex Theatre Southampton. More information about our welcome meeting and principal cast auditions coming up soon.

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