English Touring Opera and Buxton Opera House

6th November 2013

With great regret, English Touring Opera announces that the company will not be touring to Buxton Opera House in Spring 2014.

Dates were provisionally scheduled in Buxton for Thursday 1 to Saturday 3 May, with performances of The Magic Flute, Paul Bunyan and King Priam.

Due to unforeseen and unexpected circumstances, Buxton Opera House and English Touring Opera were unable to agree a deal which guaranteed ETO a sufficient level of income to enable the visit to go ahead as originally planned.

Buxton Opera House is a much beloved venue for ETO and we will continue to discuss with the theatre how best to secure a return in future ETO seasons.

In the meantime, the nearest venue to Buxton on ETO’s Spring 2014 tour is Sheffield Theatres, which is 27 miles away. In Sheffield we will be performing The Magic Flute on Friday 11 April and King Priam on Saturday 12 April.
