Opera North Projects takes apart the elements of opera: words, music, visual arts and performance, and puts them back together in new ways. Opera North Projects produces small-scale touring shows and site-specific installations, together with a programme of artist residencies called Resonance, supported by the PRS Foundation.

Home is the beautifully restored Howard Assembly Room in Leeds, a flexible performance space whose public programme is curated by the Projects Department.

The work of Opera North Projects brings artforms, technology and artists together in unexpected ways, collaborating with partners including the Royal Opera House, Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, Latitude Festival, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Barbican.
