High jinks are in store as those rascally, lovable pirates from Penzance come ashore at Blow-Me-Down Farm. Gilbert and Sullivan’s cheeky and charming operetta abounds with swashbuckling, fair maidens, bumbling bobbies and a Major General with the true gift of gab. Fun for the entire family; prepare to get a little bit damp in this rollicking, new staging!
Verdi, Shakespeare, and Game of Thrones converge in Opera North’s production of Macbeth. The warrior Macbeth fights on the side of the King of Scotland–-but when a coven of witches prophesy that he shall become king himself, a ruthless ambition drives Macbeth and his wife to horrific acts. Experience Verdi at his most theatrical in this opera that positively bristles with demonic energy.
