About Grand Opera Thailand
Grand Opera Thailand, set up in 2011, provides a platform for young Thai opera singers to perform to audiences in Thailand and the region, and later launch them into international opera careers. We aim to provide approachable opera to the public and raise the level of opera appreciation in Thailand. In addition, we also provide a voice training programme for young local singers to prepare them for an international career. Since our introduction in 2012, we have already produced more than 40 concerts and musical engagements to private and public audiences throughout Bangkok and Southeast Asia, and have enjoyed unprecedented success through sell-out performances of Opera performances, attracting intense media interest and acclaim.
Grand Opera Thailand provides a platform for young Thai opera singers to perform to audiences in Thailand, nurturing their development to become professional opera singers with a successful international career. The singers who make up the company are young talented graduates of the best vocal faculties in Thailand and since graduating have undergone an intensive two-year post graduate performance training programme under the guidance of the Artistic Director, Stefan. This training richly develops voice and stage-craft technique in both opera and musical theatre, enabling the singer the freedom to fully communicate and entertain!
The company is in constant demand and nearly always plays to 100% capacity houses. International tours have taken them to Mayanmar (first ever opera tour), Bahrain, Bangalore, South Korea and Karachi, and, closer to home, they have performed at a vareity of venues, including the Thailand Cultural Centre (TCC), Grand Hotel Ballrooms, the British Embassy for HM Queen Elizabeth II’s 85th birthday celebration, the Spanish Embassy, the Austrian Embassy, and a sell-out performance of Antologia de Zarzuela at Siam Society.
