Savoy Opera

Royal Holloway, University Of London


Savoy Opera Society was founded in 1966 as the University’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Being the oldest student society on campus, we remain at the heart of the performing arts scene at Royal Holloway to this very day. Guided by our love of Opera and Operetta our society is home to some of the finest singers, actors, and musicians on campus, and we pride ourselves in providing an essential, yet diverse, platform for those who love to perform. We are known on campus for being accepting of everyone and for being a close-knit family-style community.Each year, we put on both an autumn, spring, and summer term show producing productions that range from Gilbert and Sullivan’s joyous “Pirates of Penzance”, to Cole Porter’s raucous “Anything Goes.” In the summer we compete at the International Gilbert and Sullivan festival in Harrogate.
