We research the history of opera and related works in Britain’s richly varied musical theatre tradition.


We make studio recordings with professional musicians, following original scores and texts as much as possible, and taking into account what we know of the composer's intentions.


We release our acclaimed recordings on CD and in streaming formats, accompanied by full texts and informative essays.

Retrospect Opera
