The World's leading opera magazine
Described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘the bible of the industry', OPERA has been the world's leading commentator on the lyric stage for over 60 years. It was founded in 1950 by the late Lord Harewood, and since then has provided unrivalled coverage of events through a mixture of features, reviews (live performances, recordings, books) and analysis, plus monthly listings of events worldwide and our famous ‘We hear that' section. Our long-standing editors-Harold Rosenthal, Rodney Milnes and (since 2000) John Allison-have ensured continuity, and our editorial board includes many of the most distinguished opera critics from Britain's national newspapers. Though London-based, the magazine has an unrivalled network of international correspondents, covering performances from around the globe.
