Described as "the bible of the industry" (The Daily Telegraph), OPERA has been the world’s leading commentator on the lyric stage for nearly 70 years. Founded in 1950 by the late Lord Harewood, we continue to provide unrivalled coverage of events through a mixture of reviews (live performances, recordings, books, CDs and DVDs), features and analysis, plus listings of all major opera houses and events worldwide. Our long-standing editors – Harold Rosenthal, Rodney Milnes and, since 2000, John Allison – have ensured continuity and our editorial board is made up of the most distinguished opera critics from Britain’s national newspapers. Though London-based, we have a network of international correspondents, covering performances from every corner of the globe.
