Opera in the Park : Leeds

Set in the stunning surroundings of Temple Newsam Park, Opera in the Park is one of the highlight events of our year in Leeds, armed with our delicious wines and cheeses and heavy deck-chairs we descend on the Park in out thousands to listen to Opera on what is a very civilised night for us Yorkshire folk. This year I managed to get hold of Media pass form Leeds City Council so I could get really ‘Upfront & Personal’ to the artist who Aled Jones introduced to the stage, there was Classic Brit Award-nominee Laura Wright, rising stars Amore, the operatic quartet of Royal College of Music graduates all accompanied by the Orchestra of Opera North together with the Leeds Festival Chorus and conducted by Martin André.

Hope you enjoy the pics I’ve taken, I had so much in the ‘Opera Mosh Pit’ taking them.

  1. Carl, an evening I would have enjoyed too. You’re getting around .. and up close too – brilliant – a fantastic gallery you have served here. Like that you have mixed B&W with full color shots, but you have graphic eyes.

    1. Thanks for the lovely comments Viveka.

      We had lovely wine, cheeses and pâté as well, such a civilised occasion, and it’s one I look forward to every year ‘rain or shine’

      Carl 🙂

      1. Sound fantastic, Carl … love the picnic thing – I been to one concert in a park, Hyde Park with Pavarotti … and it was so poor weather – I left, it was bucketing down.
        I hope the summer is kind to you and your girls.
