Northern Opera Group performs rare and wonderful operas in imaginative ways.

We enable artists and audiences to experience works and composers that they would otherwise likely never have opportunity to enjoy.

We programme a range of both professional and community productions, with our annual Leeds Opera Festival the highlight of our programming.

Previous productions include 'Amahl and the Night Visitors' (2015), 'Cinderella' (2016) and 'Alfred' (2017), The Original Chinese Conjuror (2018) and Much Ado About Nothing (2019).

Northern Opera Group won 'Best Opera' at the Classical Music Digital Awards 2020.

We are certified Carbon Literate by the Carbon Literacy Project, and a signatory of Music Declares.
