Opera Unlimited is a creative partnership founded in 2010 between composer Peter Cowdrey and librettist Hamish Robinson. Our first two operas were produced by Rosie Johnston; The Lovely Ladies at Christies and The Mad Duchess at Boughton House. The premieres of these two operas combined raised £80,000 for Maggies Cancer Centres. Rosie's production of The Lovely Ladies was subsequently performed at the Buxton Opera Festival.
The Death of Hook for Children's Choir, soloists and ensemble, was premiered in Moffat in March 2019. To watch a video of the premiere click here.
We are planning the premiere production of Paciencia y Barajar, or A Sherry Trifle, in 2021; part of this opera was showcased at Bartonmere in Suffolk in October 2019. A PDF of the programme can be downloaded here.
We are working on a commission to produce a one act opera based on Milton's Paradise Lost in collaboration with the London School of Puppetry.
