Baroque treats in Autumn 2011
18th November 2010
We’re delighted to announce our Autumn 2011 season, a festival of baroque opera. Headlining the festival are three fully-staged operas: Handel’s Flavio, a revival of our critically-acclaimed production from 2009’s Handelfest, another Handel favourite, Xerxes, and a production of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, inspired by the paintings of Richard Dadd and transplanted to a WWI convalescent home. The festival will also include a programme of masterclasses and talks given by the creative team, cast and other experts, along with recital programmes in local, more intimate venues.
The tour will visit several towns and cities around the UK during October and November next year. Dates and venues will be announced next year, so please keep an eye out on this website, on facebook or on twitter.
