About Us

Cambridgeshire Light Opera is a friendly, amateur light opera group based in East Cambridgeshire. We perform to a high standard and are keen to involve all members of the community who share a love of or would like to learn more about light opera and operetta.

We perform regular charitable concerts and an annual staged production in the summer in a local venue. Rehearsals take place in and around the village of Swaffham Bulbeck, approximately 8 miles east of Cambridge.  

Our aim is to support and develop light opera and operetta, particularly the works of Gilbert & Sullivan, through modern performances but grounded in the best traditions. We seek to further the appreciation of the wonderful funny, satirical, poignant and entertaining world of light opera in a way that is relatable and easily accessible to all.

We welcome new members to take part in any capacity, including singing, performing, backstage, front-of-house, or as a creative or production management facilitating role.

Our concerts welcome all to participate without audition. 

For our main staged productions we audition for principal roles but not for chorus, aiming to enable as many people to take part as possible. We only ask for your enthusiasm and engagement in mounting community performances with like-minded people.  

Audition details are circulated to existing members, on this website and via social media.

Rehearsals usually take place on Mondays and Tuesdays. A detailed rehearsal schedule is issued for each of our events.

Come and join us!
