Coronavirus Statement


It is with deep regret that Melbourne Operatic Society informs all of its’ supporters that due to the coronavirus the forthcoming production of HMS Pinafore and Trial by Jury from 22nd to 25th April at the Duchess Theatre, Long Eaton has been cancelled.  Society members and supporters are equally extremely disappointed but the current situation is probably the most serious threat to life that most of us will have ever known.

The daily effect upon us all is constantly changing and because we cannot predict when it will all be over and we will be safe to resume normal social activities, we have decided to cancel this years’ production rather than attempt to postpone it to a later date in the year.  We will therefore perform HMS Pinafore and Trial by Jury from 14th to 17th April 2021 at the Duchess Theatre, Long Eaton.  Members of the cast will resume rehearsals for concerts later in the year and for HMS Pinafore and Trial by Jury as soon as it is safe to do so and therefore next year’s show promises to be spectacular!

We hope to be able to rehearse for and therefore perform our summer concert probably in the Autumn.  Likewise we hope to be able to perform our Christmas concerts as usual.

Finally we wish to thank all our supporters, patrons, sponsors and members of the Society for their continuing support, dedication and enthusiasm for future productions.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets through Ticketsource will be contacted by them and reimbursed.  Anyone who has purchased tickets through the Society will be contacted and similarly be reimbursed in full.
