Opera On a Shoestring is a small, independent, professional company based in Glasgow.


The team for our 2013-14 show, Opera Ahoy! - a concert of operatic pieces with a nautical theme. L-R pianist Ruth Wilkinson, baritone Phil Gault, mezzo-soprano Christine Sjolander, tenor Adam Magee, soprano Judith Gardner Jones  

"Opera On A Shoestring have a reputation for doing exactly what they say on the tin: presenting quality operatic productions on the tiniest of budgets. A packed Cottier Theatre was testament to the expectations the company generates... The audience was not disappointed."

- Mark Brown in The Scotsman on Carmen


A Viennese Whirl at Cowal Music Club, January 2010

"A well-balanced programme, an ever-present atmosphere of good fun and top class professional performances from singers and pianist were what made this a night to remember."

- The Galloway News on A Viennese Whirl

 “The real strength of Opera On A Shoestring is collective. They have succeeded in consistently delivering a strong flavour of authentic opera which transcends the limitations of staging and the lack of orchestral accompaniment through a focus on quality singing and a genuine commitment to the music.”

– Kenny Mathieson in the Inverness Courier on An Evening In Paris
