Our first ever production of Kurt Weill’s ‘Broadway opera’ Street Scene is now open. See some of what our audiences have been saying on social media so far…
I love Street Scene so much, and tonight’s @Opera_North production was incredible! Beautiful set, powerful singing, and all round amazing production. Can’t recommend it more!

What an absolute joy to watch #ONStreetScene @Opera_North tonight – a beautiful, funny, heart-breaking show, sung to the hilt and sublimely directed by the legend @ebersmatt. Also loved the unplanned @RNCMvoice 2015 Street Scene reunion with many of our gang from way back then!

Street Scene was fabulous! Marvellous music, great singing, good acting, splendid production (better than the SO 1980s one! One problem: could not hear sung words; text on screen required.

#ONStreetScene another triumph by #Opera_North, wonderful collection of #stories on different #storeys, spectacular set, vibrant singing and dancing, all woven together by the fabulous orchestra, chorus and James Holmes. And yes, I’m still humming ‘Moon faced, starry eyed’…

Utterly fab #ONStreetScene. Astonishing singing, playing, dancing even. Non-stop. Stunning set and wonderful lighting. A welcome reminder of hot weather. And not short on giggles. Inspired addition to the season — thank you so much for the chance to see this @Opera_North!
