Would you like to sing opera?


At Tayside Opera, we welcome singers of all levels of experience, from any background. Even if you can’t read music or have never sung before, all you need to bring is enthusiasm, a sense of fun and a willingness to work hard. 


We need all voice types and all ages to join us from September 2024, when our new season begins. We offer support, encouragement and all the musical instruction you’ll need to take part.
