Opera Society (CUOS)
Cambridge University Opera Society is one of the largest and most prestigious student opera groups in the UK, with a busy calendar of events taking place throughout the year.
CUOS has a long and distinguished record of fine performances which have received nationwide acclaim, including both well-known operas and unfamiliar works, and it also aims to encourage talented student composers to create completely new works.
Every year CUOS stages a wide variety of operas in a number of different venues around Cambridge. It is the hard work of determined students that enables CUOS to thrive. CUOS provides many opportunities for performers and creative/technical staff to learn the skills that will prepare them for careers in opera. In addition to its core audience of dedicated opera-lovers, it aims to reach out to the whole student population, providing them with fun, vibrant shows that introduce them to the rich and varied world of opera.
