Our first ever production of Verdi's tale of passion, power and political plotting, Un ballo in maschera, is now open. Read some of what our audiences have been saying on social media so far, and see some production photos...
Superb Ballo in Maschera from @Opera_North: wonderful singing and intense and moving performances. Quite possibly the best production of Verdi I’ve seen in the UK for years!— David Cloke (@DavidCloke) February 3, 2018

Really enjoyed tonight's performance. It was engaging, funny, sad & heart warming. Wonderful singing and playing. A cracking season from ON.— Cnamha (@Boneclacker) February 11, 2018
Superb performance in every way. Can’t imagine there was a dry eye at the end! And what a treat to see the amazing Mr Farnes. We have missed you!!— Cameron Robson (@cameronuk2001) February 10, 2018
