As we know, Covid-19 has been devastating for the Performing Arts and WOCo was not spared. Until the end of May 2020 we hoped against hope that we would be able to perform in August as planned, but it was not to be.

We will return to Panloy in August 2021 with the 19th century composer Engelbert Humperdinck's adaptation of the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel and feel confident that there will be a special joy to the rehearsals and performances.
We hope to see you there. To find out how, see our booking information.

In the meantime please do support WOCo's Emerging Artists. The company, mentored by Guy Hopkins, Musical Director and WOCo Founder, and Stephen Taylor, Director, who for the past eleven years have worked in partnership will once again be able to support, encourage and enable young singers, players and production team members to discover their operatic talents. 

You can also relive WOCo's 11th season at Panloy, Pucinni's La Bohème, by viewing the production gallery here


Sadly Covid-19 has thwarted our plans for Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel. Find out more by clicking here.
