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.
The story is a tragic one: forced into marrying the son of the blind Barbarian King Archibaldo, young Fiora continues an affair with her lover Avito right under the nose of her obsessive father in law, which leads to tragic consequences. Musically the opera draws us into a luscious soundscape of which Puccini would have been proud. It is a thrilling score - epic, sweeping, imaginative and rich. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.Performers Amanda Echalaz (Fiora), Julian Gavin (Avito), Olafur Sigurdarson (Manfredo), Mikhail Svetlov (Archibaldo), Aled Hall (Flaminio), Samantha Houston (A Handmaiden), Lisa Crosato (A Young Woman), Dominic Peckham (A Youth), Mary Burman (An Old Woman), Helen Winter (An Offstage voice).
