Founded in 2012 by artistic director Ella Marchment, Helios Collective is an opera company that has development and connectivity at its heart. Through innovative and imaginative programming, Helios enables its ever-expanding community of performers, creatives, and arts partners to work together to shape the future of opera.
Helios Collective is something to be excited about: our music is in their hands.

Among its many critically acclaimed successes, the company has produced a diverse range of sell-out operatic events, including classic, revised, and new operas; masterclasses conducted by world-renowned industry professionals; opera club nights; and opera-plays (plarias).
Helios has toured nationally and internationally to leading opera venues, including St Petersburg Philharmonia, Copenhagen Opera Festival, Rose Theatre Kingston, Sage Gateshead, and Buxton Festival.
