Last major production:

Chabrier’s L’Etoile

Listed in  "The 10 best operas to see in London and across the UK in November" in The Telegraph 9/11/13

**** Rupert Christiansen The Telegraph

 "Absolute joy" Seen and Heard International

"The cause of opéra bouffe and the oeuvre of Emmanuel Chabrier in particular was given a boost by a New Sussex Opera's revival of the composer's first complete work in the genre." Opera

"St Paul's Sinfonia played vivaciously, conducted with shape and verve by Nicholas Jenkins. The magnetic Katie Bray was Lazuli and King Ouf was resonantly performed by Neil Jenkins in a smart double-act with fellow old-timer Geoffrey Moses as his idiotic astrologer." Opera Now

Presenting innovative productions of neglected works since 1978

NSO is a community based company. Its heart is its chorus and the expert unpaid team who do the administration and behind-the-scenes work. Professionals and amateurs work together to present imaginative, high quality productions, usually of unjustly neglected or lesser-known works. Each spring the chorus presents an “in-house” production while the major production tours venues in the South East, including London, in the autumn.
