Opera to be per­formed at the bar

Yorkshire Post - Business - - NEWS -

Opera comes to the masses this week, in the slightly un­con­ven­tional set­ting of a bar.

This Wed­nes­day Opera North is hold­ing a spe­cial ‘pop-up’ opera for peo­ple to en­joy af­ter work in the re­laxed, in­for­mal set­ting of Mana­hatta on Mer­rion Street, Leeds.

Whis­tle Stop Opera is a light­hearted in­tro­duc­tion to the world of opera in the com­pany of three singers and an ac­cor­dion­ist. At just 30 min­utes long, it is for any­one un­fa­mil­iar with opera who is keen to find out more.

“Whis­tle Stop Opera will take you on a jour­ney through all the emo­tions you’d ex­pect to feel when go­ing to the opera,” ex­plains di­rec­tor John Savournin.
