Welcome to Tête à Tête: The Operas Online


JUNE 2017: we are migrating this archive to our new website and during this time some links on this old webpage may not work. Thank you for your patience. Any questions please email

Tête à Tête has been developing and performing operas throughout the UK and abroad since 1998. Since 2007, the company has also welcomed over 100 guest companies and artists into Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival to join us in exploring the future of opera hand in hand with our audiences. The festival is a three week annual event in London where Tête à Tête brings National Companies, individual artists and audiences together to explore not what is, but what might be the future for the art form of opera.

All productions since the third Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival, and quite a lot of our own productions since 1998, have been recorded and are uploaded here for you to watch. Please note that if there is no embedded video on a page it means that we were not able to post the video of that particular show.

To find an opera you can either:

search by key word (e.g. composer, show, librettist, performer etc) using the search box in the left hand column


browse at your leisure using the thumbnails below. Within each Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival thumbnail are all the production pages for that season.
