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.

Details

An operatic divertissement to be performed in an abridged version of Moliere's comedy Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. Both pignant and comic, Ariadne auf Naxos is an opera within an opera. The curtain opens on a Viennese salon where preparations are being made for a performance of an opera. There is consternation when the Major Domo (Chied Butler) announces that due to time pressure, a harlequin troupe will be performing comedy during the opera itself. The conflicting scenarios and contrasting characters reveal what happens when stand-up comedy meets Greek tragedy and music hall meets high art. Website

Performers Carol Smith, Paul McNamara, Eva Kallberg, Lucy Bates, Victoria Joyce, Joanna Burton, Rebecca Gale, Huw Rhys Evans, Robert Burt, Richard Burkhard, Dan Jordan, David Gooderson.
Music Strauss. Lyrics Hofmannsthal. Company English Touring Opera. Conductor Richard Farnes. Director Colin Graham (original). Director Alison Brown (revival). Design Colin Graham.
