Marilyn's costume and the hand-built sets are coming together for the performances! However, wigs and building materials aren't cheap, which is why we need all we can get. Thanks in advance for your support!


The newly formed Oxford Contemporary Opera Society (OCOS) is excited to announce that our first performance will be the UK premiere of Gavin Bryars' Marilyn Forever

About the Opera

It is the night of August 5th, 1962, the last night of Marilyn Monroe's life. As men enter her bedroom, viewing her body, we see moments of her life interweaved with love, relationships, ambition, fame, identity, abandonment, myth and ultimately, death.

Directed by Zerlina Vulliamy and conducted by Charlotte Corderoy, the opera will feature some of the finest performers in Oxford.

Performance dates are 22nd, 24th and 25th May 2019, in the 

Funding

The society is not-for-profit. We rely on donations in order to operate, since the reasonable prices of our tickets fall short of funding the full cost of an opera. So far, we have received some kind donations, but we still have a way to go before this performance is fully funded!

We will gratefully appreciate any support you can give! Donations will go toward the cost of props and costumes.
