About Us

Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO) is the flagship company of western opera in Singapore, with the main objective of advocating, developing and nurturing the opera scene and talent in Singapore by presenting this artform on a different platforms that are accessible to everyone. Since its inaugural performance of Mozart's Die Zauberflote in 1991, SLO has been active in presenting memorable annual seasons of operas, concerts and musical events for the enjoyment of Singaporeans from all walks of life and to give fans opportunities to enjoy operas seldom performed in Asia-Pacific region.

However, producing opera is an expensive undertaking. It is a complete and multi-faceted Performing Art as it incorporates and involves vocal art (singing), symphonic art (orchestra), dance, visual arts (sets), theatre (acting) and design (costumes and lighting). Hundreds of people are involved in an opera.

Funding from the National Arts Council and box office receipts are insufficient to cover the costs of all of our performances as tickets are heavily subsidised to ensure that the average Singaporean can afford to pay for a ticket. Most of the costs have to be sourced from sponsorship and private donations from individuals and companies.

Our Programmes

We would like to seek your generosity to enable us to continue our work, as producing operas and concerts is an expensive endeavour. Box Office receipts, grant from the National Arts Council and our fund raising activities are not sufficient to meet our needs for our 2018 activities.

Opera in the Park 2018
23 June 2018
Singapore Botanic Gardens

In it's 11th year, this year's installment of Opera in the Park is themed "Opera in Commercials". Based around well-known opera tunes commonly heard in commercials, Operas in Commercials aim to dispel the misconception that opera music is inaccessible and in fact, the genre is more prevalent that one imagines.
