The Chorus of Opera North

Our Chorus is both versatile and talented, and is a fundamental part of the Company.

Since its foundation in 1978, the group has achieved success and an enviable reputation through independent performances and Opera North productions. The Chorus of Opera North performs in a wide range of concerts and produces outstanding recordings.
