Kentish Opera

Kentish Opera, founded in 1953 by Audrey Langford and Ande Anderson, stages a wide range of operas, giving four to six performances, generally twice a year, in the north Kent areas of Bromley, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge. This UK company is professional apart from its highly trained amateur chorus and the many volunteers helping behind the scenes. Providing a vital opportunity for young professional singers to gain experience performing major roles, it is instrumental in helping them to become established with major professional companies.
