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.


The opera is a "macabre tale with an unexpectedly happy ending". It is based on what has been described as "the grimmest of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales" - a story of how a young boy is killed by his wicked step-mother and fed to his unwitting father in a stew but later comes back to life.

Music Philip Glass. Music Robert Moran.
