We are excited to announce that we are working in partnership with the Batley​​ Business Association and internationally acclaimed Opera North to bring an exciting opera project to Batley in March.

Batley Does Opera will see over 100 local people from Acorn Theatre, Batley Community Choir, Sarah Taylor School of Dance, Batley Parish School and Carlinghow Junior School performing alongside professional singers and musicians from Opera North for a one-night-only performance.

This project, which was initiated by one of our local SceneMakers, Andrew Marsden is the beginning of a possible longer term relationship with Opera North to help develop new audiences for opera in the area, and to give opportunities to people who wouldn’t ordinarily access the art form.
