Grand Opera Thailand, set up in 2011, provides a platform for young Thai opera singers to perform to audiences in Thailand and the region, and later launch them into international opera careers. We aim to provide approachable opera to the public and raise the level of opera appreciation in Thailand. In addition, we also provide a voice training programme for young local singers to prepare them for an international career. Since our introduction in 2012, we have already produced more than 40 concerts per year and musical engagements to private and public audiences throughout Bangkok and Southeast Asia, and have enjoyed unprecedented success through sell-out performances of Opera and musicals attracting intense media interest and acclaim.

The company is in constant demand and nearly always plays to 100% capacity houses. International tours have taken them to Mayanmar (first ever opera tour), Bahrain, Bangalore, South Korea and Karachi, and, closer to home, they have performed at a vareity of venues, including the Thailand Cultural Centre (TCC), Grand Hotel Ballrooms, the British Embassy for HM Queen Elizabeth II's 85th birthday celebration, the Spanish Embassy, the Austrian Embassy,  sell-out performances of Antologia de Zarzuela at Siam Society. We were greatly honoured to be chosen by the French Embassy to perform for HRH Princess Sirindhorn in 2018. 

Most recently Stefan has produced a new musical  called the Workshop a Dress Rehearsal for Life.  

This played 8 capacity performances at the Thailand Cultural Centre will  tour to Canada the UK and the UAE in 2020.    

This is the first ever professional musical production to be sung in English entirely by a Thai cast.
