Our brand new, and highly dramatic, production of Puccini’s Tosca is now open. See some of what our audiences have been saying on social media so far…
Utterly astonishing experience. Voices, set, staging and always sublime ON orchestra. Over the years you have been my opera education. I think today’s Tosca was the best opera I’ve ever seen. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

@Opera_North Wow what an amazing production of Tosca we enjoyed this afternoon. Congratulations! I’ve seen the opera so many times, but this is a Tosca for today! Fantastic!

@Opera_North you never fail, and have won me over again. Stunning production. Really clever set that totally focuses the audience’s attention to the characters on stage. Superbly sung and acted. Spellbounding orchestra as ever. Best opera I have ever seen. It’s a 10 from Glenn!

Powerful production and performance #ONTosca. In the gut and in the heart indeed. With compelling image-text relations in the programme to boot. Thank you to all involved @Opera_North! pic.twitter.com/d2fs2dUenK

Today was a big day.
Today I fell in love with #Opera… #Tosca is all drama,all the time & @Opera_North know how to put on a grand show in every respect-the drama put me in mind of Cabaret-‘In here,life is dramatic, ze cast are dramatic,even ze orchestra is dramatic… ‘ pic.twitter.com/dq4SbOa3at

#ONTosca is wonderful. Musically it was always going to be great, but the staging is a huge improvement on last time. The beautiful dome by @tomscuttdesign is inventively used, and through lighting is made quite stunning, especially in the final moments.

I rarely do recommendations but @Opera_North‘s brutal and compelling Tosca is certainly worth going to see. xx
