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.
The music is a collaboration of several composers including Mozart, and is a forerunner to The Magic Flute (1791). Recent exciting discoveries of missing sections of the score from among looted manuscripts in Russia have enabled a reconstruction of this little known work. This production is supported by JP Morgan. To celebrate the 250th year of Mozart's birth, Garsington Opera's tribute will be to stage the re-discovered The Philosophers' Stone (Der Stein der Weisen) performed in Vienna in 1790 with a libretto by Emanuel Schikanader.
