Five city dwellers. Five different backgrounds. A cosy urban bar plays host to a night of chance encounters. This is one night. Every night.

The Northern Ireland Opera Studio presents Midnight Vanities – an evening with songs from the Jazz Age and The Threepenny Opera.

Take a seat, enjoy a drink, and join our singers in a tale of five characters; their hopes, weaknesses and social aspirations, set against the songs of Kurt Weill, Franz Lehár, Hanns Eisler, and more.
