When the glamorous but fragile courtesan Violetta Valéry and her admirer Alfredo Germont find love, they pledge nothing can keep them apart.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles; featuring the Opera North orchestra. July 27-31.
Masks, music, and high-flying aerialists join for the perfect family emtertainment blending familiar stories, slapstick humor and gorgeous voices.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE WILL SING ON!
COVID-19 and the ensuing shutdown have had a devastating impact on Opera North. As with our fellow performing arts organizations, our earned and contributed income are both down significantly from this time last year. Income from ticket sales, contributions from the local business community, annual fund contributions, and the loss of income from the cancellation of our pre-season gala total nearly $350,000. That’s roughly 35 percent of our total annual income.
Please consider a gift to Opera North at this time. Your support — no matter the amount — will truly make a difference!
Thank you to the partners and producers who have helped make
Opera North and Blow-Me-Down Farm a reality.
