Our Story


Nevill Holt Opera was founded in 2013, with a clear mission to enrich lives, and empower young people, through the power of music and the Arts.  We do this by:

  • Creating world-class opera in the East Midlands, at Nevill Holt Opera.
  • We develop new operatic talent emerging from leading UK educational establishments.
  • We deliver our Education & Community Programme in areas of limited Arts provision, in partnership with the David Ross Education Trust, enriching lives through music.

Our audiences

Since opening our new theatre in June 2018, nearly 6,000 people have attended our Summer Festival, over 1500 have attended an NHO Community Event, and over 1200 artists and local people have sung or performed in the Theatre. We work hard to develop new audiences in the East Midlands. In our 2019 season, 65% of our audience came from the East Midlands region, and 33% of them were new to NHO.
