The Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO) is the flagship company of western opera in Singapore. As the longest established in this sector of the arts, we engage renowned international and local performers and musicians under our repertoire. We aim to promote and present Western operas and concerts not frequently performed in Asia-Pacific for communities from all walks of life in Singapore.
1991 marked our inaugural performance of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, and since then, we have staged high-quality opera productions, preserving the traditions of the art form whilst still remaining relevant.
As the flagship opera company in Singapore, SLO continues to upgrade our quality of musical and artistic content.
SLO strives to contribute to the development of the opera scene in Singapore by playing a key role in identifying, encouraging, developing and nurturing current and future generations of young artists and other musical talents. SLO also champions the professional growth of production and technical personnel, by which a performance’s foundation is rooted.
With all of SLO’s efforts, we aim to dispel misconceptions that opera music is irrelevant and difficult to decipher. We actively seek to join the ranks of like-minded causes and other companies in Singapore with the intent of collaboration and exchange and to expand our work with the community at large in promoting the art and joy of singing.
