Opera North has been named as a regional partner for a national programme to introduce a new audience to folk music, song and dance.
It will take part in The Full English project being led by the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).
Opera North welcomes Dutch soprano Annemarie Kremer to sing the title role in its new production of Norma, which opens at the Leeds Grand Theatre on 28th January 2012, replacing American soprano Takesha Meshé Kizart who has withdrawn from the role.
Owing to planned industrial action, it has been confirmed that Huddersfield Town Hall will not be opening next Wednesday 30th November 2011. This means that the planned concert with the Orchestra of Opera North will not be able to take place. Due to the orchestra and guest soloists’ busy schedules, it is unfortunately not possible to reschedule this concert.
Opera North sets off on tour this week, part supported and championed by regional based companies Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire auctioneers Tennants. Opening in Nottingham this week, followed by Newcastle and Manchester, the Company then heads south to London after an absence of nearly three years.
