A very special screening of the classic British film 'Brassed Off' closes the Opera North in the City festival on Sunday afternoon with a moving celebration of Yorkshire pluck. Rousing and poignant in equal measure, the score will be performed live in sync with the movie on the high definition big screen by the real stars that inspired the story — the Grimethorpe Colliery Band together with members of the Orchestra of Opera North.

This 1996 bittersweet comedy drama, written and directed by Mark Herman, stars Pete Postlethwaite as Danny, the devoted leader of the Grimley Colliery Band who is determined to show the government ‘we are not defeated’. Ewan McGregor, Stephen Tompkinson and Tara Fitzgerald are stand-outs in the impressive ensemble cast.

Before the film, the Orchestra of Opera North will present a dynamic first half performing some of the iconic orchestral scores including the William Tell Overture and the Concierto de Aranjuez (Orange Juice Concerto) that were later arranged for a brass ensemble, as featured in Brassed Off.
