Bubbly, waltzes, marches and polkas

Join us in the magnificent surroundings of Leeds Town Hall as we celebrate the festive season with a wonderful afternoon concert of Viennese waltzes, marches and polkas on Sunday 30 December at 3pm. Free glass of bubbly or orange juice with all tickets!

Under the baton of Christopher Bell, the acclaimed Orchestra of Opera North will perform popular favourites including Johann Strauss’ II On the Beautiful Blue Danube, Waldteufel’s lively Skaters’ Waltz and Lehár’s melodic Vilja from the operetta The Merry Widow. Expect to be waltzed through all-time favourites, delighted with hand-picked gems and marched into the New Year in true style.    

Adding a touch of sparkle to the afternoon is soprano soloist Stephanie Corley. Stephanie studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and at the National Opera Studio and has since appeared in major roles with both Scottish Opera, Opera North, Glyndebourne Festival, Buxton Festival, Opera Holland Park and regular appearances with Birmingham Opera. Foreign engagements have included principle roles at the Nederlandse Reisopera and at Teatro Massimo di Palermo. Stephanie also maintains a busy concert diary throughout the UK in repertoire encompassing Britten, Verdi, Mozart, Vaughan Williams and Rossini.

This annual concert is a festive favourite in Leeds so book early to avoid disappointment!  Tickets are priced £10.60 - £31.80 and concessions are available, including 50% off if you are under 18, a full-time student or unwaged. To book, call the Box Office on 0113 376 0318 or book online.
