CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Set in 1930s Spain, La Favorite tells the tale of Fernand who abandons monastic life on falling in love with Leonor. However, it is only after their wedding that he discovers that she was once the mistress or 'la favorite' of King Alphonse of Castille who, forbidden by the Pope to divorce his wife, had agreed to release her to marry as a prize for Fernand's recent military victories. What will happen to the newlyweds now Leonor's shameful secret has been uncovered?
