Welcome to the Grosvenor Light Opera Company! We are an amateur operatic society based in central London, focusing on the works of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan and complementing this with other material. GLOC has a long history - with over 70 performances of G&S since its debut in 1949!

Rehearsals have just started for our next summer show - Ruddigore; Or, The Witch's Curse, directed by Vicky Simon. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be in Ruddigore but are unable to make the first rehearsal on 4th March. There's still time to join the chorus! Thank you to everyone who auditioned for principal parts. We hope to make a full cast announcement within the next few days - make sure you sign up to the newsletter to keep updated
This year we'll be performing at the Bridewell Theatre in Blackfriars from 3rd - 6th June, and then at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in Harrogate on the 4th August.
GLOC's 2014 winter show was the fantastic Jack and the Beanstalk, a Christmas panto written and directed by our very own Liam Geoghegan. Thanks to everyone who took part and helped out at this fantastic sell out show!
Our most recent summer production was The Mikado, which we performed at Islington Arts and Media School over the summer, and then again at the 21st International Gilbert and Festival in Harrogate. Audience members joined Yum-Yum and Nanki-Poo at the Gilbert and Sullivan School of English, for a very modern take on the classic G&S tale. Kawaii!
With thanks to Judith Thei for her wonderful direction - and our Musical Director Chris Braime for keeping us all in tune and on time!
We are always delighted to hear from any potential new members of the society, and have vacancies for all voice parts - particularly tenors! We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6.45pm to 9.45pm at St Gabriel's Hall in Pimlico.
There are many ways of showing your support for GLOC - whether it be by joining us on stage, becoming an Angel - or simply buying a ticket and cheering us on from the audience!
