"Our mission is to break barriers and create opportunities for new audiences to discover classical music through sincere music-making, so as to enrich the lives of others."
Long story short, Spot Pocket Opera Theatre (SPOT) is a chamber western opera company that consists of locally-based operatic singers, resident musicians in the SPOT Music Ensemble, and a crucial team of media artists, playwright and volunteers.
Formerly registered as the Singapore Pocket Opera Theatre before being granted charity status in 2018, SPOT is reputed to be one of the major driving forces of opera in Singapore, performing in unconventional performance spaces such as places of worship, hospitals, public spaces in the heartlands and even business and shopping districts.
SPOT's effort to enrich the community has attracted invitations to perform at the Istana, SAF 50th Anniversary Rededication Ceremony, Joo Chiat CCC NDP Gala.
Appearances abroad include shows in Kuala Lumpur, in collaboration with DAMA Orchestra, and in Kuching, which the State-Secretary of Sarawak invited SPOT to return for a private performance.
