About immersive opera

Michael Jones as the Policeman in Crocodile - HUO

What to expect

Hull Urban Opera specializes in immersive opera which puts the audience at the heart of the action, experiencing the same environments as the performers. The lack of barrier between performers and audience allows for a more immediate, intimate and exciting experience.

Audience members new to our work may have a concern that they are going to be put on the spot. Please understand that we would never do this. All engagement with performers is completely voluntary and we want all of our guests to have the best possible experience.
