English Touring Opera at Hall For Cornwall, Truro. Time 7.30pm.
English Touring Opera presents one of the best loved of all operas, alongside one of its best kept secrets.
La bohème (Puccini) Tue 17 Mar
La bohème is a tale of young love, starting on Christmas Eve in a Paris garret. On this festive night lovers draw close, before poverty and ill-health force them apart. With some of the most memorable music in opera, ETO's new Italian-language production lifts every spirit and breaks every heart.
The Wild Man of the West Indies (Donizetti) Wed 18 Mar
The Wild Man of the West Indies (Il furioso all'isola di San Domingo) is an extraordinary opera which vanished after initial success. Based on an episode in Don Quixote, it's a love story of Shakespearean depth, set on a Caribbean island. A rare feast for lovers of bel canto (beautiful singing), and a rare adventure for lovers of theatre.
Both operas are sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
Pre-show Talks - Tues 17th & Weds 18th Feb at 6.30pm - Please contact Box Office on 01872 262466 to book.
