Led by a professional music leader from the Leeds-based opera company, Sing ON is a chance to learn and sing excerpts from famous opera such as, La Traviata, Don Giovanni and Aida. During the final hour of the four-hour workshop you will get to sing alongside the Chorus of Opera North, giving you a unique insight into being part of an operatic ensemble.

“We love being able to offer people exciting creative activities. This one should be a particularly unforgettable experience as the participants will get the chance to perform with, and hear the amazing power of, professionally-trained voices up close,” says Jacqui Cameron, Opera North Education Director.

“Our events are open to everyone and we aim to make them as friendly and welcoming as possible. We hope that everyone who takes part will experience the pleasure that comes with group singing and will leave with a real sense of achievement having mastered some opera.”


The event is part of Opera North’s week-long residency at The Lowry where it is performing three operas: La bohème, Puccini’s heart-breaking tale of young love set amongst a group of bohemians in Paris; Giulio Cesare, Handel’s take on the passionate relationship between Caesar and Cleopatra; and Martinů’s The Greek Passion which explores the fate of a group of refugees when they arrive in a village as the residents prepare for their annual Passion Play.
