About Us

The Isle of Cumbrae Opera Retreat Festival presents a weekend-long programme of recitals, concerts, talks and events; all set in the beautiful surroundings of the Cathedral of the Isles on the Isle of Cumbrae, Scotland’s most accessible island.

Bringing together a selection of the best conductors, singers and instrumentalists from many of Europe’s leading opera houses including the Opera di Firenze Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Scottish Opera and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Isle of Cumbrae Opera Retreat Festival guarantees a weekend of high-quality music-making.

There are a number of options available for those wishing to attend the weekend ranging from a Full Board Residential Package to a Weekend Events Pass for those who wish to organise their own accommodation on the island.

Details on our programme of events, artists, the Isle of Cumbrae, the Cathedral of the Isles and more can be found on this website.

We look forward to welcoming you to the island and sharing with you the most beautiful music that the world of opera has to offer.
