Season of Happy Endings

Wednesday 24 March 7.30pm

Season of Comedy

This Spring, English Touring Opera present three of the wittiest works of the repertoire, taken from the 18th, 19th, and 20th Centuries. These very different operas – all of them describing the events of one day - find comedy in stifling Sevillian manor houses, in enchanted woods, and in dusty bachelors' quarters.


A Midsummer Night's Dream – Britten


First produced in 2004, ETO's hugely successful production of the Britten/Shakespeare masterpiece returns. In a fairy-haunted wood, lovers' knots are tangled, and strange dreams create monstrous romances. Only in an hilarious play performed by working men are all the opera's tensions and enchantments eased. Michael Rosewell conduct's Britten's eerie, highly theatrical score, with a cast led by Jonathan Peter Kenny and Andrew Slater.

"***** Hike miles to see this... ETO's staging of Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream is wonderful beyond words. A corker of a show from a tip-top team"  - The Independent
