Timothy Nelson will sing the role of Nathan in Opera North's world premiere of Mark Simpson's new opera Pleasure, directed by Tim Albery and conducted by Nicolas Kok. 

Pleaure is an exciting collaborative project between Opera North, Aldeburgh Music and the Royal Opera House. With a cast of just four singers, including Lesley Garrett, the opera tells the story of a toilet attendant in a hedonistic gay club in the north of England, presided over by a bacchanialian drag queen. 

The opera premieres at Howard Assembly Rooms in Leeds on 28th April and will also be performed at Liverpool Playhouse, the Britten Studio (Aldebugh) and the Lyric Hammersmith. See here for complete dates and details.
