Brand new online magazine Opera For All has launched today. The new site is dedicated to all aspects of the artform. It will look at everything from opera’s 400-year history right up to how it remains relevant today.
The aim of Opera For All is to make opera more accessible to everyone. It will shake up the perception that the artform is stuffy, old fashioned, too expensive or incomprehensible and show that it can be enjoyed by anyone anywhere.
Based in London, the site will bring readers all the news from the world of British opera, as well as covering productions from venues as diverse as the opulent and stunning Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to pub opera up and down the country.
The site will provide a solid grounding in opera, covering what goes on behind the scenes, explaining the stories of the world’s greatest operas and talking to the people who work in opera. It will have something for everyone, from the long-standing opera buff to those just first discovering the artform.
Opera For All’s editor is Rebecca Armstrong who has almost 20 years’ experience in magazine publishing, both online and in print, having worked as assistant editor of London Planner and editor of Birdwatch magazine. A trained flautist, she has loved all kinds of music for as long as she can remember.
