From 26 July, Grimeborn Opera Festival returns for the fifteenth year, featuring thirteen operas, four new works and ten female directors from a variety of traditional favourites and new tales from across the globe.
This year, Arcola is embarking on our most ambitious Grimeborn project yet: the final two instalments of Wagner’s Ring Cycle at the cavernous Hackney Empire. With 17 Singers, 10 Creatives and an Orchestra of 18, completing the multi-award-winning project is a huge undertaking and we need your help to make it happen.

“Arcola Theatre has always championed adventurous artists, and this has never been clearer than in our Grimeborn programme this year. Music has the power to connect us, and it has always been our belief that opera should be accessible to all. Our commitment to affordable ticket prices means that everyone can enjoy opera and I am so excited to watch this year’s line-up.”
