How our Friends make a difference

Our Friends are brought together through their passion for Opera North. They see our opera productions, explore music in new ways and champion our Education programme.

Together, the support from our community of Friends across the UK makes a big difference to the Company. Each year our Friends support a new production, bringing music and opera to audiences across the north of England.

This season, their combined support will bring the Company’s brand-new production of Tosca to the stage.
