CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


Orphee is the first of a trilogy of music theatre pieces that Philip Glass wrote in the 1990s based on films by Jean Cocteau. Orphee - Orpheus transformed into a trendy French poet - goes on his journey into the afterlife, accompanied by Philip Glass's mesmeric music.

Music Philip Glass.
