Opera, chills and a £50 bar tab

Riders to the Sea

Riders to the Sea is usually set on the Irish coast, but they’ve moved it to Yorkshire for this unique production. You’ll follow Maurya, a woman who’s lost her husband, her father-in-law and all but one of her sons to the sea. When her last son decides to set sail, she predicts that she will have no sons by nightfall – and it’s a premonition she may come to regret. Expect ghostly apparitions and unsettling music in this creepy, otherworldly tale.

This is going to be a fantastic night out. You’ll get 4 tickets to the opera, with the best seats in the house, and a £50 bar tab. Grab a couple of their ghoulish cocktails and prepare for a spectacular show as the orchestra shows you what they’re made of.
