Northern Opera Group are welcoming applications to join our Trustee board.


The award-winning Northern Opera Group present rare and wonderful operas in imaginative ways. Based in Leeds, we have been praised for the innovation and breadth of our programming, with an output that isn’t available anywhere else in the UK.


“Thriving" (The Guardian)

”Rapidly burgeoning ... energetic and imaginative" (Bachtrack)

We are a registered charity with a Trustee board chaired by Mark Skipper DL. As we continue to grow and further develop our work - serving audiences in Leeds, the North of England, and online - we are looking for new Trustees to join our board.


We welcome applications from people of all ages, backgrounds and experiences, who would like to support the work of the company. Meetings take place 3 to 4 times per year and are held online. No previous experience of being on a board or advisory group is required.


We are particularly interested to hear from individuals who currently work in the opera sector in a creative, freelance and/or management capacity.


To apply or to find out more, please contact David Ward (Artistic Director) - Applications should consist of a short cover email / letter expressing your interest, and you may attach a CV or link to a personal website if available.
