Opera North sets off on tour this week, part supported and championed by regional based companies Welcome to Yorkshire and Yorkshire auctioneers Tennants. Opening in Nottingham this week, followed by Newcastle and Manchester, the Company then heads south to London after an absence of nearly three years.
In a new partnership with the Barbican, there will be a Yorkshire take-over for one week as Opera North showcases its work in the City. Welcome to Yorkshire and Tennants Auctioneers are both supporting Opera North to transport over 150 singers and musicians to perform three productions over five dates, from 22 November.
Opera North is travelling south with Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore, Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades and The Girl I Left Behind Me.
Gary Verity, Chief Executive, Welcome to Yorkshire

Rodney Tennant, Owner, Tennant’s Auctioneers
