Signed Performances

Selected Opera North performances are sign interpreted. D/deaf audience members who are booking for the BSL interpretation qualify for discounts in some venues, so please phone the box office of your chosen venue.  They will also recommend seating areas with the best view of the signer.

The film of Trouble in Tahiti, originally commissioned by The Space, has been produced in accessible formats for D/deaf and hard of hearing, and blind or partially-sighted audience members.

The film is available in full, for free, with audio description, British Sign Language interpretation, or British Sign Language interpretation with subtitles and are also available on Opera North’s YouTube channel.
