As The Lowry approaches its Twentieth Anniversary its only right that we celebrate the work of some of the Companies who have joined us on our amazing journey. Opera North first visited during the first year we opened, and they remain one of our most important Partner Companies. The company visit at least twice every year with a mixed programme of new work and well established popular Operas – always accompanied by a community engagement programme and performances for children. Perhaps fittingly the last performance before we had to close was Opera North’s Marriage of Figaro – and we look forward to welcoming the Company back in November.
The semi-staged concert performances of The Ring Cycle was one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by the Company. We presented a part of the cycle every year for four years – before finally bringing all four parts together for one amazing sold out week in June 2016. Settle back and enjoy some of the most extraordinary music ever written!
