Autumn 2022


The tale of an emperor and his bride kept apart by court intrigue and the workings of fate, Handel’s rarely-performed Ottone returns in a revival of English Touring Opera’s 2014 production. Featuring radiant Byzantine-inspired designs by takis, and sung in a translation by Andrew Porter, the production was highly esteemed by audiences and critics alike. Music comes from ETO’s period instrument partners, the Old Street Band, conducted by Gerry Cornelius.
