‹ Back to What's On A Night at the Opera: with the Orchestra of Opera North

29 Jul 2017

Part of Millennium Square Summer Series

Opera North dazzles with music from opera and the stage in an open-air summer celebration in the heart of Leeds at Millennium Square.

Performing some of the finest operatic arias and show-stopping songs from the musicals – and including exclusive previews from Opera North’s upcoming season at Leeds Grand Theatre - the Orchestra of Opera North will serve up a feast of classic masterpieces, lesser-known delights and toe-tapping numbers.

Joining the orchestra are Opera North luminaries Quirijn de Lang (Cinderella, Kiss, Me Kate, The Marriage of Figaro) and Jeni Bern (Kiss, Me Kate, The Ring, La Bohème, The Marriage of Figaro), who will be on hand to enchant with instantly-recognisable arias from Puccini’s heart-breaking Madama Butterfly and Mozart’s towering Don Giovanni, among other greats from the operatic canon.

The Golden Age of Musicals is represented by sparkling selections from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s much-loved Carousel, Cole Porter’s sizzling comedy Kiss Me, Kate and more. With street food, craft beer and wines from the very best local suppliers this summer evening is guaranteed to leave you feeling positively ‘WUNDERBAR’!

The playing of the Opera North orchestra is so darn hot it’s practically a fire-risk.

— The Guardian on Kiss Me, Kate

de Lang has a magnetic presence and the mahogany-toned voice is focused and used to compelling effect.

— Opera Britannia

You’d search long and hard to find a stronger vocal duo than Quirijn de Lang’s sardonic matinee idol of a Fred Graham sparring with Jeni Bern’s glamorously volatile Lilli Vanessi.
