Who we are

Operaluna was established in 1995 to bring high quality opera and dance to new audiences at low ticket prices in Wiltshire. 

The charity encourages and promotes young artists and has assisted many talented musicians over the years.

Operaluna supports several musical charities, particularly those working within Wiltshire. It is a member of the Opera and Music Theatre Forum.
