Gothic Opera was founded in 2019 by sopranos Beatrice de Larragoiti, Charlotte Osborn and Alice Usher, and became a registered charity in 2020. The company specialises in performances of rarely-seen operatic works that take inspiration from the uncanny atmosphere of the Gothic and supernatural.
Productions to date are: Der Vampyr (2019), Bluebeard's Castle (2021) and La Nonne sanglante (2021)
