Back to Press Releases WALTZ INTO THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE WITH OPERA NORTH AS CONDUCTOR COMES HOME

John will lead the Orchestra in an afternoon of Viennese classics including selections from Strauss’s Die Fledermaus and Lehár’s Die lustige Witwe (The Merry Widow). The celebrated annual concert in the Strauss dynasty’s home of Vienna has made their music synonymous with the New Year, and the Orchestra of Opera North’s own homage to this tradition has become an annual highlight of the company’s Kirklees Concert Season, with tickets regularly selling out. Classic FM’s John Suchet returns to Huddersfield to present the programme and Kathleen Ferrier Award-winning soprano Jennifer France is the soloist.
