Early Opera in Cambridge

Fitzwilliam Chamber Opera is a venture at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, founded with the aim of presenting a biennial fully staged production.
In 2007 the initial opera was Handel’s Xerxes (review).
In 2009
Monteverdi's Orfeo was performed over five nights plus a matinée at the ADC Theatre in
Cambridge.
In 2012 Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas was performed in an all-student production.


Cambridge Handel Opera was founded with the intention of presenting fully-staged productions of Handel’s operas, in English, every two years in the West Road Concert Hall. Recent productions have included Ariodante, Agrippina and Atalanta.
The Company has been wound up in its present form upon the retirement of Andrew Jones. It is hoped to establish a new Company with similar aims if a new Musical Director can be found.
