This month Opera North will host two separate bloggers events at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle and The Lowry, Salford Quays. A selection of local bloggers and tweeters have been invited to come and see Opera North’s production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore.
Ruddigore is a witty Victorian melodrama and one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most inventive works. Filled with slapstick comedy and old style humour, we are challenging the bloggers not to laugh and form their own opinion on whether ‘the old jokes are still the best?’
The bloggers will receive ‘access some areas’ behind the scenes treatment with a backstage tour and introductions from Opera North representatives and cast members. The Lowry event will offer live tweeting from the auditorium to give an interactive and live story telling element to the evening. Audioboos will be taken during the interval and blogs posted after the event. The event can be followed using the hashtag #ruddyblogON.
