Review: Leeds Youth Opera perform Shackleton at Armley’s Interplay Theatre

By Susan Johnson

Leeds Youth Opera presented a new British Musical at Interplay Theatre in Armley this week.

The theatre was full whilst we eagerly awaited to see the musical “Shackleton”, book and lyrics by Matthew Knowles and music by Simone Chiappi. We weren’t disappointed as the acting, music and singing was superb.

Leeds Youth Opera (LYO) encourages young people from the age of eight to 25 to develop their drama skills and voice development, encouraged by the more mature members taking on the demanding principal roles with youth and experience beneficial to both.

The audience were thrilled to see such a high-quality performance at their local theatre, praise for the cast and the artistic director Anita Adams and musical director Tom Mitchell. It is certainly worthwhile to continue supporting this little gem of a theatre which offers events at very affordable prices.

If you would like to join LYO, the company rehearses at Interplay Theatre every Saturday during term time. E-mail your interest to leedsyouthopera_group@outlook.com.
