Seven UK opera companies, English National Opera, English Touring Opera, Northern Ireland Opera, Opera North, The Royal Opera, Scottish Opera and Welsh National Opera, are joining forces for Inside Opera: Live. Hosted live on YouTube from 2pm - 6pm on Saturday 10 May and streamed live from Opera North's base at Leeds Grand Theatre. It combines live streamed and filmed footage to give viewers a chance to experience opera across the UK from the inside, with behind the scenes access, live interviews, and insight into opera being created.

On 10 May, Opera North will be preparing for matinee and evening performances of La Boheme, English National Opera will be preparing Julian Anderson's Thebans and at Warwick Arts Centre, English Touring Opera prepare to perform Mozart's The Magic Flute whilst across the UK other operas being performed include Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Puccini’s Tosca and Madama Butterfly, and Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier. We are promised specially commissioned behind the scenes films from all participating companies, live interviews with singers and directors, and live links to rehearsals, backstage and community-based activities, plus the chance to hear from the performers as they go on-stage.

The event is intended to widen with audience for opera and will be presented Kirsten O'Brien (formerly of children's TV). But regular opera goers are sure to find plenty to fascinate, even if it is to catch up on what other companies are performing, or the chance to see back-stage at their favourite theatre.  Inside Opera:Live can be seen at from 2pm - 6pm on Saturday 10 May 2014.

  1. You know this place is badass the moment you visit here. I went to a wedding here and I must say this venue is exceptional. The view on the rooftop is stunning from day to night.
