Come join our unauditioned chorus for our summer production of Cinderella, rehearsals 7pm every Tuesday in room 4013, Building 34!

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 July 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!

In August 2019, we reprised our Double Feature at the 26th International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival on the 16th of August in the Utopia Theatre!

In February 2020 we brought an old favourite of H.M.S. Pinafore in all its Victorian Era glory to The Annex Theatre!
