Join our chorus! Rehearsals every Tuesday 7pm @ 34 / 4013.

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!

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

In February 2019 we brought a medieval resetting of Princess Ida to the Annex Theatre!

Finally, in Summer 2019 we brought a Double Feature of G&S' Trial by Jury, retold in the setting of a 90s reality TV show, and Sullivan and Rowe's The Zoo set down the road from the TV studio in the same period!

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