Hinckley OFF – Opera Fringe Festival

T· Ar 2016 grand re-opening will be in style!

We’ve recently relocated lives and jobs to the Midlands, and just couldn’t miss the opportunity to bring opera and new music (read ‘opera fringe’) with us. After a few months of networking, friendship making and – above all – thinking, we are now very proud to announce the launch of Hinckley OFF – Opera Fringe Festival. On Friday 1 and Saturday 2 July, in partnership with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, we stage the first edition of what we hope will soon become a regular seasonal happening.

OFF will be the first festival of its kind, a fringe event exclusively dedicated to opera, a platform where composers, librettists, directors and creative artists will be able to showcase the best that the genre has to offer.

We’ll show you works with a strong sense of theatricality, that speak to their contemporaries and sit outside our preconceived definitions: to be accessible, a work needs to break boundaries.

More info will be available soon, but the programme of this year edition of Hinckley OFF will be as follows:

Friday 1 July | 6.30pm | Hinckley College Theatre | Lower Bond Street | LE10 1QU
