Win tickets to Opera North's Little Greats Festival

The Little Greats | Full Trailer


Opera North’s Little Greats Festival is coming to the North of England, showcasing the huge range of emotions from passion to power, through short operas - and we’re giving you the chance to experience a double-bill of your choice in either Leeds, Newcastle or Salford Quays.

The Little Greats festival has something for everyone: hot-blooded Italian classics Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci, family-friendly magical opera with Ravel’s bewitching childhood fantasy L’enfant et les sortilèges, musical theatre classics with Gilbert & Sullivan’s hilarious Trial by Jury and the jazzy Trouble in Tahiti by Bernstein, composer of West Side Story. Not to mention the chance to see and hear the glorious and rarely-performed gem Osud (Destiny) by Leoš Janáček.

And you could be enjoying an evening for two at one of these enchanting double-bill operas at either Leeds Grand Theatre, Theatre Royal Newcastle, or The Lowry, Salford as we have a pair of tickets to be won.

We'll also include an overnight stay with breakfast at your chosen venue's local boutique Malmaison Hotel and £200 spending money for you and your guest.

For the chance to win answer the question below before 23:59 on Wednesday 4 October 2017.
