What lengths would you go to for love? This autumn, we are excited to present two productions that will leave you questioning the limits of devotion:
On the surface a joyous retelling of the Cinderella story, complete with a murderously wicked stepfather and astonishingly virtuosic vocal parts for Cinderella and Ramiro (the Prince), the triumph of goodness and kindness in Rossini's opera masks a more biting commentary on status and desire.
The Coronation of Poppea
With music and characterisation which still feel strikingly modern, Monteverdi's darkly entertaining depiction of violence and intrigue at the court of Emperor Nero was one of the first operatic masterpieces.
Both operas will be performed in English with English surtitles.
We are excited to share these productions and look forward to seeing you on tour!
