Retro gets a radical makeover as the decade’s most iconic songs are reworked into breathtaking new orchestral versions, performed live by the original artists with the 60-piece Orchestra of Opera North.
Hits include ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’, ‘Smalltown Boy’, ‘Heaven is a Place on Earth’, ‘Leave a Light On’, ‘King of Wishful Thinking’, ‘We Close Our Eyes’, ‘Heart and Soul’ ‘China In Your Hand’ and more.
More 80s classics performed by the ensemble and backing vocalists include Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’, Toto’s ‘Africa’, The Jacksons’ ‘Can You Feel it’, and many more.
Part of Leeds City Council’s Millennium Square Summer Series, 80s Classical gets the annual Opera North in the City weekend underway with live music, film screenings, street food and festival bars in the open air city centre venue.
