English Touring Opera

English Touring Opera is the most prolific touring opera company in the UK, travelling annually to around 70 venues, more than any other English opera company. With its mission to offer opera to everyone, the company presents as many as 140 performances a year with its two major annual tours. Both seasons often visit venues which receive little or no other live opera.

ETO’s outreach programme focuses on creative work, and ranges from community operas and music theatre workshops to educational productions featuring artists from the company’s main-stage shows, touring to schools across the UK. The company is also a national leader in the provision of arts for dementia sufferers.

ETO has helped launch the careers of singers including Amanda Echalaz and Sarah Connolly and gave the world première of Alexander Goehr’s opera Promised End in 2010.
