"What our work is trying to do is not only involve and excite audiences, it's trying to take forward and experiment and push the boundaries of the art form itself - of how we might perform it, explore it, be excited by it." - Graham Vick, Artistic Director Birmingham Opera Company’s only norm is to upturn all norms. It changes lives. ★★★★★ The Observer, Fiona Maddocks "BOC’s work remains as sharp and urgent as ever – a power surge feeding into opera’s electricity supply." ★★★★★ The Guardian, Erica Jeal "Birmingham Opera Company pulls off a triumph that is exceptional even by its unique standards" ★★★★★ The Times, Richard Morrison For a SHORT TIME ONLY - Your donation gets DOUBLED!
