Leeds Opera Story - 'Guy Mannering' (1816)
30 Apr 2020 - 31 Dec 2020
Discover 300 years of opera history in Leeds with The Leeds Opera Story!
In this documentary film we explore one of the most popular operas of the 1800's - 'Guy Mannering' (music by Sir Henry Bishop, libretto by Daniel Terry).
We explore the origins of the opera, unearth some of the long forgotten theatres of Leeds, and even confront the age-old question, 'what is an opera'?
Featuring recordings of songs from the opera by Alex Haigh (alexhaigh.co.uk) and Rosemary Clifford (rosemaryclifford.com).
