CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. 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. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Thornton Wilder's three minute plays are short, pungent morality tales from Biblical and Renaissance sources. Glanert applies a dazzling variety of styles to get to the heart of their contemporary resonance. This semi-staged concert is a first chance for UK audiences to hear the operatic work of this celebrated opera composer. Detlev Glanert's opera Jest, Satire, Irony and Deeper Meaning has received multiple productions worldwide. His most recent, Caligula, was acclaimed as "utterly compelling" (Financial Times) at its premiere in Frankfurt earlier this year.
