‹ Back to What's On Spring: A Twilight Concert

An early evening concert of songs dedicated to the joys of Spring.

Current Associate Artists at Opera North, soprano Ellie Laugharne (Despina, Cosi Fan Tutte), and mezzo-soprano Heather Lowe (Lel, The Snow Maiden), perform in this opportunity to hear two exciting young singers up close, talking about the music they love. 

With Opera North Head of Music David Cowan on piano.
