Join us for WOCo’s 9th season at the Château de Panloy

WOCo are delighted to be performing Mozart's The Magic Flute on 2nd and 3rd August at the Château de Panloy in Port d'Envaux South West France. A stunning group of Emerging Artists (singers, players and production team) will be selected via audition over the winter with the support of a number of musical colleges and RADA. Our professional team of mentors are reunited for the production:

Audiences can look forward to theatrically stunning performances of perhaps one of Mozart's greatest and best-loved operas
