Station House Opera

Founded in 1980, Station House Opera has developed into an internationally-renowned performance company with a unique physical and visual style. The work varies enormously in scale, appearance and location and uses spectacle to explore the intimate relationship between people and the environment they inhabit. Described as "visionary as it is stunningly visual", the company have created spectacular projects in a variety of locations all over the world, from New York's Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage to Dresden's historic Frauenkirche and the Salisbury Cathedral. More recently their work has been uniquely created for more intimate spaces all over the world including Orangerie in Dijon, an old electrical factory in Weimar and London's 19th century music hall at Hoxton Hall.
