Malvern Opera Society organizes regular trips to live opera within a two hour driving distance. The price for each trip includes excellent seats and the cost of a comfortable coach. By block booking we are able to get good seats at a discounted price.

We organize several trips each year to opera performances by Welsh National Opera as they offer some of the best opera in our area. Our preferred venue for the WNO is the excellent Millennium Centre in Cardiff.

The English Touring Opera come to Malvern Theatre in the Autumn, this appears in our programme, but bookings should be made direct to the theatre. They also visit Cheltenham in the Spring and we arrange a coach trip to see one or more of the operas.

Wherever possible we will arrange tickets for the Pre-Performance talks when available. On some trips we allow time for an (optional) meal before the performance.

Live cinema relays from opera companies have increased in the last few years and Malvern Theatre show most of the broadcasted performances from the Metropolitan Opera and Glyndebourne. There are other local venues in Worcester, Pershore and Cheltenham who also show these or other broadcasts. A list of the performances which we know about appears on the Programme section of the website. Bookings should be made direct to the theatre. Discounts are often available when booking several operas.

We normally have six or seven society meetings in the year which take place in the Hospitality Suite in Malvern Theatre. These usually include a speaker who will talk about an opera or opera related subjects, often accompanied by excerpts on CD or DVD.

Prospective members are welcome to attend as a visitor.
