History: 

Driven by a passion to produce accessible and innovative opera, Mike & Vanessa Woodward founded 'Opera Anywhere' in 2000.

Our first ever performance was on an especially erected stage on our Village Pond in Sunningwell, as part of the millennium celebrations in 2000. 'Proms On The Pond' has now become a biennial music and arts festival which we have developed into a cross genre celebration of music of all types including opera, folk and rock music! See www.sunningwell.com for more information on the Sunningwell Festival.

Opera Anywhere have been enjoying successful tours performing in many different venues such as small theatres, village halls, gardens, concert halls, castles, manor houses, railway stations, shopping centres, corporate head offices, conference centres, ice rinks. punts and on village ponds! In 2007 Opera Anywhere appeared on ITV and on the Harvey Goldsmith Channel 4 and E4 follow up TV documentary entitled 'Get Your Act Together' and have also broadcasted live on 'In Tune' on Radio 3. Opera Anywhere's most recent engagements have included 'Opera On Punts' at the Henley festival and for the annual TED conference.
In 2010 Opera Anywhere appointed a board of directors and trustees and became registered as a charity and a Limted company.
