Driven by a mutual passion and desire to reinterpret music and stories from the world of opera, conductor and composer, Benjamin Ellin and Director, Keith Cheetham founded Focus Opera in 2009.


Focus Opera specialises in tailoring productions for specific non-opera sites, creating a unique quality of drama and sound in a bespoke setting to give something exclusive to audiences. Alongside its operatic repertoire, Focus Opera actively promotes new compositions, workshops and project collaborations with other artistic disciplines - bringing the highest standard of artistic performance to unique places.
