We are delighted to announce Switch ON; a programme of new outdoor events and digital projects taking place this Autumn, embodying Opera North’s commitment to make music with and for audiences in communities across the North.
The activity respects the latest government guidelines on social distancing and live performances, which are not currently permitted to take place indoors. Activities will include:
As You Are, a new soundwalk for Leeds by South African cellist and composer Abel Selaocoe;
Song of Our Heartland, the digital premiere of Will Todd’s new community opera;
La petite bohème, a new animation to be shown in cities across the North;
Whistle Stop Opera: Hansel and Gretel, an outdoor tour for family audiences.
Presented by the broadcaster and writer Suzy Klein, a preview of the season, Switch ON: Live from Leeds, will be available via Opera North and OperaVision’s YouTube channels on Wednesday 30 September from 7pm.
