LAOS work with Opera North

30 August 2012

Across West Yorkshire we are all a friendly bunch and often work together to help promote each others shows. Recently we have been working with Opera North and there have a trio of delights coming up with may be of interest. 

Don Giovanni - Mozart

New production- Lust for life. 

Legendary womanisers like Don Juan and Casanova were the inspiration behind the infamous protagonist of one of Mozart’s best loved works. Having bedded 1003 women in Spain alone, Don Giovanni’s insatiable hunger for amorous exploits brings about his downfall – despite the efforts of his ever loyal servant. Filled with dark comedy and divine music, Don Giovanni is an irresistible celebration of life, lust and liberty.

Sung in Italian with English titles - Faust Gounod

New production - A pact with the devil.

Disillusioned with his joyless life, Faust sells his soul to the devil in exchange for youth, wealth, glory and power – with fatal consequences. Overflowing with captivatingly beautiful music, including the ‘Jewel Song’ and the ‘Soldiers’ Chorus’, Gounod’s masterpiece has inspired works from The Phantom of the Opera to The Adventures of Tintin. Experience a stunning new multimedia production of one of the most popular operas of all time.
Sung in French with English titles.


The Makropulos Case - Janáček
New production - Who wants to live forever?

The operatic equivalent of a Hitchcock film, The Makropulos Case is both a mystery thriller and a meditation on desire and eternal life. Bursting with fantastically life-affirming music by one of the greatest composers of the last century, it keeps audiences on the edge of their seats until its surprising conclusion. Having opened the renowned Edinburgh International Festival this year, this smart and stylish new production is not to be missed.
Sung in English with English titles.
