Be moved by world-class opera and ballet

Leeds, West Yorkshire

Powerful performances by Opera North and Northern Ballet will take your breath away with powerful stories in atmospheric venues.

Opera North is the country’s national opera company in Northern England and one of Europe’s leading arts organisations. It actively challenges conventional perceptions of opera by breathing new life into the classics. Their performances excite, challenge and entertain audiences and the chance to see Opera North in their home theatre, the splendid 19th century Leeds Grand Theatre, is an opportunity not to be missed. 

Northern Ballet is a powerhouse of inventive dance and one of the best-loved dance companies in the world. Their full-length ballets take audiences on a journey of emotions with performances that will leave you in awe. Northern Ballet regularly tour throughout the UK but their home is the Phoenix Dance Theatre in Leeds. 

Leeds is easily accessible from London by train. The journey is around 2 hours 30 minutes.
