About the Show/Event
Information for Attila - In Concert at Royal Opera House, West End (Opera or Operetta). A rousing tale of plunder, passion and patriotism. Attila races through a plot that cheerfully rewrites history to terrific musical effect. The action is tied together by thundering orchestral writing, massive patriotic crowd scenes and a gutsy sense of good versus evil. The last of these is personified by Attila himself, the rampaging barbarian who nevertheless achieves a surprising nobility. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Approximate runtime 140minutes (including any interval).
