Castor and Pollux is unusual in being a celebration of brotherly rather than romantic love. It is a work of ethereal beauty, rich in affecting airs, elegant dances and powerful choruses, with a plot that sweeps spectacularly from ancient Sparta down to the gates of Hell and up to the starry vault of Heaven. Running time: 2hrs 30mins

Performers Sophie Bevan (Talaire), Laura Tatulescu (Phoebe), Allan Clayton (Castor), Roderick Williams (Pollux), Henry Waddington (Jupiter), Andrew Rupp (High Priest of Jupiter), Ed Lyon (Mercury/Athlete).
