“Duchy Opera lived up to its reputation as one of the country’s best semi-professional opera companies by putting on one of its finest performances with The Merry Widow.” Alan Cooper - Cornish Guardian (October 2010)
“A company refusing to rest on its laurels, eager to experiment and keen to attract a new audience to the world of opera. Managing to take a bite out of the little-known Heinrich Marschner’s German opera The Vampire, instead of killing it off, Duchy Opera breathed new life into it.” Lee Trewhela - The West Briton (October 2011)
“Just to say how wonderful The Vampire was! Saturday was an EVENT and the OPERA was fantastic. The music interesting and beautifully played, the singing superb, a most enjoyable production - THANK YOU to all.” 2011
We seek to broaden our sources of funding in order to ensure a firmer financial future enabling the company to continue to provide high quality live performances of opera and to overcome unexpected reductions in income. In addition to general funding, supporters can request to sponsor specific aspects of our productions – orchestra, soloists, costumes,
etc. Companies could also have their logo placed on our publicity material and website, as well as credits in press releases and programme.
"La Traviata is given thoroughly traditional treatment under the sure direction of Penzance’s own Richard Jackson. Accustomed to consistent high-quality, with a fine orchestra and lively chorus of 22, this is no exception. Duchy Opera goes from strength to strength; we should be very proud of them all.” Eric Dare – Cornish Guardian 2017
“A huge thank you to Duchy Opera for making me so welcome over the past four years and for giving me such amazing and valuable opportunities as a young singer which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I will miss it very much when I move to London in September. The Minack week was a fantastic end to my time with you and thanks to everyone who made it so brilliant!” Rebekah Scamp – 19-year-old local young soloist played Flora – La Traviata 2017
