CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Opera or Operetta
Centred around two warring kings and the earlier marriage, in babyhood, of their respective children, one of the kings is due to produce the bride this very day. Instead he arrives with his three hulking sons, saying that his daughter Ida has renounced men and is running an exclusive women's university. This is a wonderful satirical romp through the women's movement and includes knights, cross-dressing nobles and repressed maidens who are incarcerated in the university, which any man would enter on pain of death.
