Your home is the new concert hall

5 March - 23 April 2021

This event has passed.

Are you missing live music? Or do you just need a pick-me-up?

Introducing the new concert hall – your home! Let us brighten up your day with a bespoke, one-to-one performance with a member of our Orchestra or Chorus, live on Zoom.

Get ready for a recital with a twist… There won’t be a programme in sight, and we can’t serve ice-cream at the interval, but this intimate, one-of-a-kind experience brings live music from a member of the Orchestra or Chorus of Opera North straight into your home.

Each performance will be unique and last approximately 10 minutes, and you’ll be the only person in the audience. We’ll be keeping the performer and repertoire under wraps until you enter the Zoom concert chamber. Operatic arias, jolly folk songs and even a marimba solo are just some of the fabulous repertoires you might be serenaded with. There will be an opportunity to ask the artist a few questions at the end of your performance.


Performance slots will be available to book until 48 hours before. Tickets are limited to one per customer.
