Saturday 4 September 2021
8pm – 10pm

Enjoy an evening of opera and classical favourites hosted by singer and presenter Aled Jones MBE. Special guests include world-famous baritone Sir Willard White, sopranos Sophie Evans and Peyee Chen and Tenors Unlimited, also known as the Rat Pack of Opera. Our stellar line-up of stars will be accompanied by The Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, a professional orchestra specifically created to support professional Yorkshire-based musicians affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

There’ll be plenty of opportunity for audience participation and the chance to sing along to your favourite belting tunes.

This show features a spectacularly silent firework finale (we don’t want to disturb Harewood House’s gorgeous wildlife now, do we?)

The shows will take place in the grounds of Harewood House, taking full advantage of the picturesque surroundings. Settle down for the evening with your own chairs and blankets – and why not tuck into a picnic, too?
