Opera North Christmas Concert
Dewsbury Town Hall - Thu 20th December 7pm
Garry Walker makes his second visit to the Kirklees Concert Season to conduct the Orchestra of Opera North and the massed voices of the Chorus of Opera North, Opera North Youth Chorus and Opera North Young Voices in the annual Christmas Concert at Dewsbury Town Hall.
Britten’s Ceremony of Carols brings together the young and female voices of Opera North Youth Chorus and Young Voices. Featuring settings of medieval and 16th Century poems, this popular cantata was composed by Britten on a dangerous wartime voyage across the Atlantic, as he returned to England from New York.
This December marks the 75th anniversary of its first complete performance, conducted by Britten himself in the Wigmore Hall. The second half will feature Opera North’s Chorus accompanied by the Orchestra with a miscellany of festive classics, seasonal treats and of course, audience carols!
