Behind the Scenes at the Grand Opera House
7th November 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree - £10
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the waiting list. We plan to repeat this event in 2018.
Many of our members will have previously enjoyed a visit exploring the back-stage area of York Theatre Royal. Today we have the unusual opportunity to take a private tour behind the scenes at the building now known as the Grand Opera House, although its original purpose was very different. Theatre staff will introduce us to the history of the building and demonstrate some of the traditional and more up to date mechanisms required when staging a live performance. Please note that the backstage area of this historic building involves the negotiation of a number of steep and narrow staircases.
The tour will end at approximately 3.30
Meet in the foyer of the Grand Opera House
Cost £10 (non refundable)
