LOpSoc is the University of Southampton Light Opera Society. Every year we put on at least two shows. We have a strong community of members who all share a great enthusiasm for the work that we do. We perform a great variety of light operettas, from well-known Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, to works by other composers such as Noël Coward, Franz Lehar, and Edward German. In addition, we perform original works written by students at the University. We also organise recitals within the society and regular socials. Interested? Curious? Join us! Our Facebook group is a good place to join for news and other interesting tidbits, as well as general chatter between society members. Our Facebook page provides all the essential news and events without the chatter!You can also sign up to our mailing list for all the latest news and updates.
LOpSoc is thrilled to announce "Fiddler on the Roof" as our 2016 Spring Show. As always our chorus is open for everyone! Auditions for principal roles will be held on the 1st-3rd of October. Stay tuned for updates! We recently took our very own production of Iolanthe to the International G&S Festival in Harrogate. We received awards for Best Directors, Best Costumes and Best Female Character Actress, and we were also nominated for the Best Chorus award. Read more about our past tours here. Last year LOpSoc presented two G&S shows, Iolanthe and H.M.S. Pinafore. Read more about our past shows here.
