London's leading Gilbert and Sullivan company




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!

Princess Ida - Tickets now available!


GLOC will be performing the 1884 classic

Princess Ida; or, the Castle Adamant at the

Bridewell Theatre, central London from 30

May to 2 June 2018. Director Tony Baker has

chosen to avoid the usual pseudo medieval

settings and costumes and to bring a different

visual angle to the piece, whilst still keeping all

of Gilbert's dialogue and Sullivan's music intact.


The production uses the premise of a boys school

and a girls school coming together to present a

performance of "Princess Ida" within a 1930's

classroom setting.


Tickets are now available for this exciting show

from here - earlybird tickets are just £14 and

available until the end of April. Hurry now before

we sell out!















We are always delighted to hear from any potential new members of the society, and have vacancies for all voice parts. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6.45pm to 9.45pm at St Gabriel's Hall in Pimlico.
