During these challenging times, Opera North is determined to use music to enhance the lives of our audiences wherever they may be.

While we cannot perform live, we are delighted to be able to share some of our productions and performances with viewers online. We will respond to the current crisis with creativity and resilience, connecting people through the powerful shared experience of music and opera.
