Interesting joint venture from Opera North and West Yorksihre Playhouse in Leeds, England.
The result of the first major collaboration between two of the North’s leading arts organisations, the West Yorkshire Playhouse and Opera North, premieres this June as a sparkling new production of Into the Woods opens in Leeds. Directed by West Yorkshire Playhouse Artistic Director James Brining and with a cast drawn from the Chorus of Opera North, this darkly comic fable explores what happens when the characters from several well-known fairy tales collide. The result is often startling, always entertaining – and with some classic Sondheim lyrics along the way.
The press night is at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on Wednesday 8 June.
