STORY

Die Fledermaus or The Bat is a tale that involves double crosses, practical jokes and romance. Set in the roaring 1920s, it tells the tale of Dr Falke’s payback for his mischievous friend Eisenstein. He sets up a night of confusion, masquerade and intrigue as part of The Bat’s revenge. Eisenstein is kept on his toes whilst his wife, her old flame, his maid and even the prison warden get up to no good! A night of pleasure, champagne, flirtation and dance is followed by a morning of confusion, revelation and laughter.

Leeds Youth Opera brings together young people aged 12-25 from Leeds and surrounding areas to dive-into opera and operetta.
To experiment, to explore, to build a love for opera in its many forms.

 

Led by professional music and artistic directors, LYO creates an environment for young people in Leeds who are interested in
vocal, dramatic and orchestral arts to learn by performing real opera on a real stage.

 

Each year we perform one, and often two, fully staged productions. LYO is one of very few regional youth opera groups and is widely
considered a unique society. A few years with Leeds Youth Opera can bring a
lifetime love for opera, lasting friendships, and growing self-confidence.
