CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

Don JoT2029285285
In a utopic (and fabulously-costumed) nightscape, somewhere beyond time, place, and stylistic integrity, Don Giovanni's victims seek justice. But what might ?justice' look like, and sound like, in a queer-reimagined world?
Music Queer Collective (after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
Lyrics Leo Doulton (after Lorenzo da Ponte)

Production details

A queer take on Mozart's perennially problematic classic by Arcola Participation Queer Collective, for lovers of queer art and opera alike. With this performer-led re-devising of the classic opera, Arcola Participation's Queer Collective makes its Grimeborn debut. This isn't just another operatic re-staging; everything is up for grabs - the characters' genders, the plot, and even the music are radically refashioned to suit the Collective's desires and talents. This is a new way of making opera, where a community reoccupy the classics, making a space there for underrepresented voices and their stories. Come and see the future of opera: a dizzying cocktail of forms, people, and spectacles in a refabulisation of this classic show. Sung in English without surtitles. Part of Grimeborn 2019
