Held by the University of Leeds Special Collections, the Opera North Archive comprises material from the earliest programmes, recordings and organisational documentation, to more recent posters, advertising and photography.  The Archive is more than information about Opera North; it is a reflection of the operatic art form and the way it has connected with and responded to society since 1978.

Dr Kara McKechnie’s book Opera North: Historical and Dramaturgical Perspectives on Opera Studies explores three different ways of approaching opera studies: the production of opera through history; ethnography; and production analysis. Published by Emerald Publishing, it is available to buy here.
