Opera North Orchestra

Opera North is England’s national opera company in the North, and one of Europe’s leading arts organisations. The company is committed to producing work of the highest quality that excites, challenges and entertains. It tours not only throughout the North of England and to London, but also to opera houses on the continent in cities such as Prague and Barcelona, and performs at major international festivals including Edinburgh and Ravenna. An innovative approach to programming and performance style has been widely acknowledged through a number of prestigious awards, including four for its Eight Little Greats season in 2004 (Royal Philharmonic Society Opera and Music Theatre Award, The South Bank Show Opera Award, TMA Theatre Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, Manchester Evening News Theatre Award for Opera).

Opera North is a vibrant, lively organisation, which actively challenges conventional perceptions of opera. Breathing new life into the classics, the company is also a strong advocate of lesser-known works and a champion of musical theatre. Opera North collaborates with artists and companies working in a variety of media, including film and visual art. Its versatile Chorus and Orchestra also perform independently, constantly revitalising their approaches to music-making. Opera North Education is one of the best-respected arts education departments in the country. The team uses opera to inspire and develop artistic creativity not only for children but also for young people, as well as those with disabilities and the wider community.
