New Devon Opera (NDO) is a professional not-for-profit opera company, set up in 2004 to serve the south west region. In the last two weeks of July, NDO tours full opera productions to venues in the south west. The company uses professional opera singers and orchestra and, a community chorus.

‘NDO’s real secret weapon is something much, much rarer. There’s an enduring sense of good nature emanating from everyone in this company and a perceptible meta-pleasure is gained from watching a team of people deriving their own pleasure from giving pleasure to others, rather than simply seeking approval. Together, this team communicates a genuine humanity - both to its members and to the audience - in a most extraordinary way. That’s easily ‘world class’ enough for me’. (Seen & Heard International review of La Boheme 2009).
