The London Sinfonietta is a Resident Orchestra at Southbank Centre.

Royal Opera House
We regularly work with the Royal Opera House in the co-commissioning or co-producing of new music theatre projects. Recent projects have included Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s double-bill The Corridor / The Cure (with Aldeburgh Festival) and Georg Friedrich Haas’ Atthis (with video designer Netia Jones).
Arts Council England
We receive investment from Arts Council England (ACE) as a National Portfolio Organisation. Their investment allows us to build a season in London and tour to regional partners and abroad. It also underpins our work with people of all ages, encouraging them to hear, learn about and participate in new music. Finally their investment allows us to raise more money from individuals, trusts, foundations and sponsors which extends our programme even further.
Royal Academy of Music
We regularly work with students from the Royal Academy of Music's Manson Ensemble to produce large scale orchestral projects side-by-side, such as our series of Stockhausen works at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall (Trans 2017; Hymnen 2015; Donnerstag aus Licht 2019).
Central Saint Martins
Each year we collaborate with students on the Performance Design and Practice course at Central Saint Martins.
Music Theatre Wales
In 2018 we began our association with Music Theatre Wales. Based in Cardiff, the opera company commissions composers and writers to deliver exciting new opera to audiences across Wales, the UK and internationally.
