Girton Operatic is based in the village of Girton near Cambridge and is an active group of singers, musicians and back stage crew.
Girton Operatic was founded in 1989 by a group of enthusiasts, many of whom had children at the village school. The first show was The Gondoliers by W.S.Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan, which was performed in Girton Glebe School Hall in the spring of 1990.
Since that time the group has produced a fully staged production of a musical show (including an orchestra) every year. Other musical events take place during the year- for example a charity concert takes place each summer, usually in the parish church.
