Bury Court Opera began staging opera in 2007 in the intimate environment of The Barn at Bury Court and now presents an annual season in early Spring and occasional productions at other times of the year. Bury Court Opera was granted charitable status in 2013 and is dedicated to the support of young performers, directors and designers at the early stage of their careers.
The Barn, with it's beamed interior, is blessed with outstanding acoustics and our aim is to demonstrate that opera produced on this smaller scale has the potential to have a greater impact, providing more immediacy and emotional intensity than a more extravagant production in a larger house.
“Debussy’s only finished opera is not a simple work but you won’t see it done more persuasively than in Aylin Bozok’s production…"(London Evening Standard on Pelléas et Mélisande 2013)
“….a show that moved and had plenty of visual interest. Definitely worth the journey"(Michael White on Eugene Onegin 2013)
“I have seen many country-house opera productions recently but this, by a long way, topped the lot.”(John Amis on Cenerentola 2012)
