This group is definitely the best group of dancers we saw on this trip. They had choriography for a change and they had themes for every segment. Totally professional!

During our 5 week stay in Sevilla these 3 visits was without a doubt better than all other thing we've seen and done. Don't bother with the full dinner, just order off the menu and sit back and enjoy the company of the singers, staff and fellow guests. You do not need to be an opera buff but if you like the 3 Tenors or Catherine Jenkins you'll love this place. It is not like a theatre, the performers are right there with you. I'll be sorry to leave Sevilla because I cant go again next week But I'll be back. .

After much difficulty we finally got to spend a wonderful evening at the Sevilla de Opera. It could be best described as a taste of opera. The night we were there they did some arias from Verdis La Traviata The singing was excellent and they also did a selection from other operas and operettas. It was in a very comfortable relaxed setting.

However, we found a lack of accurate information available about this programme. The tourist office gave us misinformation

We were looking through the local market when we spotted the poster for the Sevilla de Opera's performance of Carmen. One of the members explained that this was the only production where they combined opera with flamenco dancing. The location - within the market - and in the city of Seville where the opera is set and within a stone's throw of the bull ring was too good to miss. Typical of Spain, the performance did not start until 9pm but it was a delight. The audience were seated at tables and we could order drinks and food during each interval. This is only a small newly formed company so the musicians comprised a spanish guitarist and a pianist who accompanied the opera singers. There was no opera chorus so the story was narrated with the singers - an Italian contralto, a japanese soprano, and (I presume) a spanish baritone and tenor. All had excellent voices and they mingled with the audience during a number of the songs. The the male and female flamenco dancers were a bonus and added even more atmosphere to the evening.
The only drawback was that the opera being sung in French had a spanish translation as a powerpoint display alongside the stage. Fortunately the storeyline is familiar to most of the audience, who appeared to be mainly english speaking. A translation in english would have been a bonus. This did not distract from a very enjoyable evening with splendid singing and dancing. If you are in Seville grab the opportunity to enjoy an evening with this talented company.

In October I had the wonderful experience of visiting Sevilla de Opera performing Carmen.
We were 7 family members with very different taste, but we all appreciated and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, almost cabaret style, but with first class artists giving first class performances.
Truly a refreshing new way of enjoying opera ... to sit comfortably at tables ... enjoying wine and great food and just being overwhelmed by an innovative mixture of opera and flamenco.
An unforgettable evening that ended with the artists singing Happy Birthday for my mother ... the true intimate spirit of Sevilla de Opera.
