NCO Studio

New Chamber Opera Studio was developed in its present form during 2000, by Stephen Rice, the Studio’s first director, and Michael Burden, New Chamber Opera’s director productions. Its principal aim is to focus New Chamber Opera’s work with undergraduates into a unified workshop in which, during each term, the members of the Studio prepare extracts or small operas. Since then, it has presented a range of small pieces and extracts, and has prepared the material for three Hambro Visiting Professors of Operas, Thomas Allen, Phillip Gossett, and Graham Vick.
