Opera North Pop-up

This season, you can see an urgent political thriller brought bang up to date in Tosca or enjoy a high-kicking Hollywood-style musical in The Merry Widow. There’s never been a better time to try the opera. Find out more...

If you’ve ever thought the opera isn’t for you, this is the event that will prove you wrong. Expect comedy, dancing and a whole lot of singing at this unusual pop-up opera…

On Thursday 27th September 2018, Opera North will take over Brasserie Blanc for a night of delectable food and unmissable entertainment. This is opera as you’ve never seen it before – light-hearted, intimate and anything but traditional, it will give you a crash course in the highs and lows of this woefully underrated genre. Expect big laughs, tear-jerking tragedy and mind-blowing music as the opera explodes into action around you.

Put yourself in the heart of the action at this unique pop-up opera

This latest pop-up opera is a compilation of sorts. It’ll bring together the best toe-tapping, roof-raising tunes from Opera North’s upcoming productions in a wonderful mishmash of music. From Tosca to The Merry Widow, you’ll get a taste of four different operas, all in one night, as the performers weave their way between the tables. This is no concert, it’s an immersive theatrical experience, so you won’t just be part of the audience, you’ll be part of the story.

Brasserie Blanc Leeds

You’ll start the night with handmade pea puree and feta cheese blinis washed down with an Elderflower Collins, before sitting down to a 3-course dinner. From cheese soufflé to boeuf bourguignon and berry pavlova, they’ve put together a delicious French feast for you to enjoy alongside the evening’s entertainment. And it’s all going to be served up in their beautiful riverside restaurant, where you’ll be surrounded by exposed brickwork, industrial character and classy furnishings.

Hurry, book now before it sells out
