  • Mission statement

    Opera North prides itself on a fresh approach to opera and musical performance. While opera productions on the main stage lead our work, we’re more than just an opera company.

    We collaborate with innovative artists and a range of creative companies on a myriad of projects. Our own critically acclaimed Chrous and Orchestra continually look for new ways in which to create music by performing independently with other musicians.

    Opera North is an award-winning opera company and one of the leading arts companies in Europe.

  • Aims

    Opera North aims to:

    • Encourage the understanding and appreciation of the lyric art by providing, presenting, organising and conducting opera performances, symphony concerts and educational events primarily in the north.
