Orchestra of Opera North: Viennese Whirl

This event has passed.

A winter wonderland of waltzes, polkas and marches

Join us for a glittering programme of orchestral pyrotechnics to see out the old year and welcome the new in spectacular style.

Inspired by Vienna’s traditional New Year celebrations, this epic feast of Strauss, along with other giants of the Austrian music scene, includes much-loved melodies, lively polkas and sparkling songs from the famous ‘Thunder and Lightning’ polka to Lehár’s ‘Dein ist mein ganzes Herz’.

An Opera North main stage favourite as a baritone, Gavan Ring makes his Company debut as a tenor, and former Music Director Paul Daniel conducts.
