About Us
Bringing Opera Home

We are a new cross-border opera company who will take exciting, international-quality performances of the world’s greatest operas to towns and cities around the nine counties of Ulster. We cast our shows from the best singers in Britain and Ireland, working with renowned conductors, designers and directors.

And that’s not all: our mission is to bring opera right into people’s living rooms via Augmented Reality technology. We work at the threshold of technology, pushing ourselves, our artists and our partners to envision what opera will look like in an increasingly digital world. Through the magical power of opera we inspire audiences and artists of the future – by bringing opera home.

What we do: immersed in opera

We see physical touring and immersive technology as points on the same compass, all leading towards greater access to opera across the province of Ulster and beyond. We draw from the rich tapestry of the past to create works ready for the future.

Regular cross-border touring

We are dedicated to the live experience and long for the moment we can raise our batons and voices with a live audience again. Our regular network of touring venues charts a course for bringing the finest artists to local audiences in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Immersive Technology

By intergrating game mechanics and digital technology into our work you’ll be able to welcome Ulster Touring Opera into your home using augmented and virtual reality. By working with our partners across the island of Ireland, we bring opera to life in truly unique ways.
