Songs of love with the Chorus of Opera North

6 Jun - 21 Jun 2019

Book Now

Join the Chorus of Opera North for an evening of sensual, seductive and romantic song accompanied by a piano duet.

With poetry steeped in middle and far eastern influences set to incredible scores, and love songs straight out of the great American songbook, this is a chance to see the ‘superb’ (The Times) Chorus perform in an intimate setting.

From Palestrina’s strikingly sensuous motets and Brahms’ romantic waltzes, to the exuberant and lively jazz standards of Fats Waller and Cole Porter, this is a wonderful evening of song that is not to be missed.
