This event has passed.

This event is part of Open Day: Backstage Pass, a one-off chance to experience what really goes on behind the scenes.

Join Peter Restall, our Technical Manager, on the stage at Leeds Grand Theatre for an insight into Opera North’s life backstage.

See what happens behind the scenes in our new production of Carmen, understand how the lighting rig and other technical departments support all the on-stage action, and get up close to the showstopping swing from Carmen’s opening number.

Tickets will be available on the day but booking is advised.
