History

Our history since Northern Ireland Opera’s foundation in 2010

History

In its short history, Northern Ireland Opera has won national and international acclaim for the quality of its work. From its inception, and despite the worst recession in living memory, the company was determined to produce strongly indigenous, imaginative, and risk-taking work that would be on a par with other UK opera companies. The company has won awards and award nominations and been recognised for its high-profile successes in adverse financial circumstances. It has been, and will be, an opera company that both Belfast and Northern Ireland can be proud of.
