Duchy Opera presents a thrilling piece of romantic German opera with this dramatic new production of Heinrich Marschner’s The Vampire (Der Vampyr). Based on John Polidori’s 1819 novel which is regarded as the original vampire story, the opera tells the story of a vampire’s desperate attempt to slay three young brides in twenty-four hours, in order to gain one more year among the living.  
 
Sung in English using a new version of the score and translation by Musical Director Paul Drayton and Director Keith Sparrow, the team responsible for last year’s sell-out version of The Merry Widow.

Supported by Cornwall Community Foundation, and in Association with Carn to Cove.
