The Associate Artists have been brought together by Northern Ireland Opera to bring live music safely to communities during this pandemic and are performing socially-distanced concerts, online recordings, community pop-ups and school and charity workshops during this period.

How does this streaming malarkey work then?

It's easy. You need a screen with internet access and chances are if you're reading this then you've already got that!

You buy a ticket as normal. Half an hour or so before the show we send you an email with a link to the show. You click on the link and before you know it you're enjoying some live music. 

The ticket will give access for one device. More than one person can watch one device - feel free to be honest and ethically superior by buying one ticket per person. Artists and venues need your support!
