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 to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

May Day is looming, and the small town of Loxford is in chaos. All the potential May Queens are morally unsuitable. Desperate, the locals decide a May King will have to do instead. They choose the blameless Albert Herring, from the greengrocers. He isn't keen, but stuck firmly under his mother's thumb, he'll do what he is told. However, after one rum-laced lemonade at the May Day ceremony, Albert disappears, and even greater chaos ensues. Britten's sharply satiric take on village life makes for a glorious and very English comedy.

Performers Josephine Barstow (Dame - Lady Billows), Alexander Sprague (Albert Herring), William Dazeley (Mr Gedge), Joseph Shovelton (Mr Upfold), Mary Hegarty (Miss Wordsworth).
Music Britten. Company Opera North. Conductor Justin Doyle. Director Giles Havergal. Design Leslie Travers. Costume Leslie Travers. Lighting John Bishop.
