Aberdeen University Opera Society

Curtain up on University Opera Society

The Opera Society made its debut performance with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in 2010, followed by Carmen in 2011. 

The society was formed in October 2009 by fourth year music student Kirsten Beach and will perform for the first time with a three-day run at the Cowdray Hall, Aberdeen.

Kirsten said the society was set up to address a gap in the options for classically trained singers and performers at the University.

“There were plenty of choruses for us to join, but the only chance we got to perform theatrically was the Gilbert and Sullivan show which is put on once a year,” she added.

“The main purpose of the society is to provide students with an opportunity to be in a fully staged opera, not only to sing and act but to choose what we perform, and to challenge ourselves and push ourselves to the limits of our abilities.
