Les Azuriales Opera is administered almost entirely by volunteers (as opposed to the musical organisation, which is entirely professional). Sarah Holford, the Opera's President, is assisted by Clotilde Hocquard and Audrey Milheres, who provide part-time administration. Mark Holford is the Director of Development, whose principal role is fund raising for Les Azuriales' activities.
Apart from these three, the rest of the organisation is carried out by a team of people, all of whom give up their free time to assist, as well as giving ongoing advice and support throughout the year. They include a number of teenagers, whose key role is to provide "front of house" services during our summer programme. If you are interested in being part our our team, you can find out more on our Volunteers page.
Since its foundation, Les Azuriales' Music Director has been Bryan Evans M.B.E. He is probably the world's finest exponent of piano accompanied opera, having been involved in this art form for over 25 years. He is also the Music Director of Diva Opera.
