The 80s is back!
Retro gets a radical makeover this summer as some of the most iconic songs of the 80s are reworked into breath-taking new orchestral versions and performed live by the original artists. Featuring Jimmy Somerville, Howard Jones, Nik Kershaw, Johnny Hates Jazz and Carol Decker (T’Pau) together with Opera North’s 60-piece orchestra, this is hit after hit of 80s gold.*
