WHAT WE DO
HighTime explores and reinvents to bring opera to life in new, vibrant and daring ways. Opera as it should be: storytelling at its most powerful.
Live opera is a uniquely thrilling experience. HighTime actively seeks opportunities to bring opera at its very best to places and spaces it isn’t currently found.
Working in association with the Belgrade Theatre as Springboard Artists, HighTime was founded in 2014 by Artistic and Executive Directors Felicity Green and Benjamin Hamilton. They aim to fuse sublime music with ambitious theatre, to create extraordinary experiences which truly resonate in the 21st century.

HOW WE DO IT
We tell old stories in new ways. We write new English translations, reimagining classical works to resonate in the 21st century. We place equal emphasis on music and theatre. We refuse to be limited by preconceptions of what opera ‘should’ or ‘shouldn’t’ be. We work with the best and brightest singers, artists and creatives to create first class opera which is big in its ambitions. We actively seek out new places and spaces where opera isn’t currently found. Our audiences are at the heart of our work, and strive to make art that is as inclusive as it is exciting.
