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 and, as a PRS Foundation Talent Development Partner supported by PPL, runs a programme of artist residencies called Resonance.
The work of Opera North Projects brings art forms, 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.
Home is the beautifully restored Howard Assembly Room in Leeds, a flexible performance space whose public programme is curated by the Projects Department. Following the Music Works redevelopment project, the Howard Assembly Room reopened in 2021 with its own dedicated entrance, and an increased events programme bringing more of the best music, film and performance to the heart of the city.
