Carriageworks Theatre – Millennium Square – Leeds
Youth Opera presents one of the greatest Operas every written.
Experience first hand this classic piece of theatre from our young and vibrant cast.
Don Giovanni is possibly the most famous of all the famous operas by Mozart. It has a dark and brooding storyline about the naked ambition and self-interest of our eponymous anti-hero. Fortunately, by the end he will get exactly what he deserves.
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.
