Opera North is a national opera company based in Leeds, and a leading UK arts organisation. Our award-winning work tours to theatre stages and concert halls throughout the North and beyond, including to London and major international festivals. We curate an eclectic artistic programme of gigs, concerts, spoken word and film in our 300-seat Howard Assembly Room. As part of a busy and wide-reaching programme, Opera North’s pioneering Education department delivers high quality music education to over 1800 young people in the Leeds city region through the In Harmony project.
In 2019 Opera North declared a climate emergency and pledged to become net zero carbon by 2030. The board and wider team knew that this commitment would have a significant impact on the way we produce and implement our creative output as a large organisation that tours.
