Dear Friend

An evening of great Yorkshire opera

You are warmly invited to an evening of great Yorkshire Opera, the first sharing of what may become the Bradford Opera Festival.

Over the past few months Skipton Camerata and Freedom Studios have been collaborating on an Arts Council-funded research and development project aimed at testing the water for a full-blown opera festival in Bradford. The project culminates in a sharing of work before invited guests.

We hope you can join us! 

Two free tickets have been reserved for you. If you are able to attend, please RSPV to

Enjoy a taster of Rossini’s much-loved The Barber of Seville, relocated to Bradford with a new Yorkshire-dialect translation by Ian McMillan.
Yorkshire-poet Ian McMillan provided the libretto for Skipton Camerata's and Freedom Studio's previous collaboration, Ice Cream: The Opera which was performed at the Bradford Festival in 2017.

The evening also includes three brand new home-grown mini-operas all inspired by the sounds, sights, and stories of Bradford:

  • Perfume by Alya Al-Sultani (composer) and Kamal Kaan (writer)
  • Friendship by Fran Wyburn (composer) and Bradford Friendship Choir for refugees and friends
  • Last Gift by Ben Crick (composer) and Khadijah Ibrahiim (writer)
Bradford Friendship Choir

The sharing will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday 3rd December at Kala Sangam Arts Centre, St Peters Building, 1 Forster Square, Bradford, BD1 4TY.

We hope you can join us for a drink, a mince pie, and some beautiful music. 


Ben Crick Artistic Director, Skipton Camerata
