Spring 2011

Rarely toured masterpieces by Mozart and Puccini – most popular of opera composers – and the first, full UK production of Tobias Picker’s Fantastic Mr Fox, a new family opera based on Roald Dahl’s classic: that’s ETO in Spring 2011.

La clemenza di Tito is one of Mozart’s final works, and his most magnificent. Its epic story of terrorism, betrayal and forgiveness is set in blazing colours, requiring fearless singers.

Puccini’s one-act operas Il tabarro (The Cloak) and Gianni Schicchi could hardly be more different: one is a moody romance ending in a grotesque murder on a barge in Paris, and the other is a sparkling comedy about a family inheritance in Florence. Composed by a mature master of drama and character, whose lyrical genius is epitomised in the lovely aria O mio babbino caro.

Fantastic Mr Fox is an irrepressible opera, pitting the wild animal world against three farmers and their devilish (soprano!) digger. Perfect for seasoned opera goers and first-timers alike.
