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.
Weber shatters musical conventions, transcending the limitations of the flawed libretto to create a dramatic masterpiece that it is difficult to conceive was written in the first twenty-five years of the nineteenth century. Unlike Der Freischutz
which followed the traditions of Mozart's German operas and Beethoven's Fidelio, Euryanthe
has no dialogue, being a continuous musical texture where every word is sung or declaimed. The entire orchestral writing takes a leap forward from the eighteenth century with characteristic colourings of each orchestral section being introduced in an inspirational way - the much performed overture being a foretaste of the brilliance of the complete score. Sung in German with English supertitles. New production.Performers Anne Schwanewilms (Euryanthe), John Daszak (Adolar), Pavlo Hunka (Lysiart), Lauren Flanigan (Eglantine), Clive Bayley (King Louis VI).
