Opera North continues to work actively to achieve our ultimate goal – to perform the community opera, Beached. Since the school withdrew last Friday, we have persevered in our efforts to negotiate with all parties involved – Lee Hall, Harvey Brough and the school – in an aim to move forward and reach this goal.

Progress has been made but discussions continue.

Opera North has had a two year commitment to Bridlington, working weekly with the primary school since 2009 as part of their formal education, and setting up a series of new community groups. Beached is one part of this project, commissioned as a celebration of the two year engagement.
