Opera North's Aida

Verdi’s epic will be brought to life by the team behind Opera North’s critically acclaimed staging of Turandot. As two countries go to war, Aida must choose between her country and the man she loves. What will she decide? Find out from Wednesday 1st to Thursday 30th May 2019.

This is your chance to win an unforgettable night of music in the picturesque surroundings of Leeds Town Hall.

Verdi is one of the greatest composers the world has ever seen and this is your chance to see him at his very best as Opera North presents a very special concert staging of Aida. The music is all too familiar, even if you’ve never seen the opera performed, you’ve surely heard the Triumphal March – and Verdi reserved some of his finest arias for his doomed lovers. Now, how would you like to win tickets?

Prepare for an unmissable night of entertainment

In a world at war, a love story is unfolding. Aida has fallen in love with the enemy general, but when her father asks her to betray her lover to save her country, she finds herself in an impossible situation. Forced to choose between love and duty, she triggers a chain of events that no-one could have seen coming. With a moving score from Verdi and an international cast who are guaranteed to do it justice, Aida is simply unmissable – and if you’re our lucky winner, you can see it for yourself with 2 tickets to opening night on Wednesday 1st May 2019.

Head into this cosy little wine bar where they’ll bring you a bottle of house wine while you work your way through an almighty sharing platter. It comes with every single meat and cheese on their menu, so you can tuck into Yorkshire Chorizo, Harrogate Blue and much more. But it doesn’t end there. You’ll get crackers and pork pies, olives and almonds, piccalilli and caramelised red onion, hell, you’ll even get pork scratchings.
