How to Find Us
We may be one of the busiest UK opera companies, and we may be based in Farnborough Hampshire next to the M3, but we don’t have a ‘proper’ office in a fancy business park, and we don’t receive visitors.
So, if you’d like to contact is, please feel free to:
- call us on 01252 511 762
- fill in the form above and hit “Submit” (it’s as quick as an email)
- or you can email us at enquiries[at]hatstandopera.co.uk (remember, to beat the spammers, please replace the [at] with @)
An Opera Company in Farnborough, Hampshire?!
Why not! Farnborough is a great location for an opera company actually; quick access to the M3 for UK opera touring, 35 mins by rail into central London for corporate entertainment jobs, 20 mins (on a good day) via the M25 to Heathrow for all those foreign celebrity private parties, etc!
Farnborough is probably most famous for its biannual Farnborough International Air Show, which for us means two weeks of airborne excitement right overhead (one week of practice, one week of actual show). In 2012, the Air Show is earlier than usual to avoid clashing with the Olympics, so if you call us between 2nd to 15th July 2012 after 1pm and get the answerphone, do leave a message – if we picked up the phone, we wouldn’t be able to hear you anyway!
Opera in Hampshire
Hatstand Opera are the only full-time national professional opera company in Hampshire, and the county has some great venues where you can see opera.
The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton stages tours by major opera companies such as Glyndebourne and WNO, whilst you can also hear opera as part of the classical music seasons at The Anvil in Basingstoke.
We have a soft spot for more intimate opera in middle scale venues, so HSO adore performing at the Theatre Royal Winchester. Perhaps the best-known summer opera company / venue in Hampshire is Grange Park Opera, based at The Grange near Alresford.
