CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

The story is a profoundly moving eulogy to forgiveness - but in true Verdian operatic tradition we must first travel the road of honour, vengeance, deception and hatred. Stiffelio, a minister of the church, is confronted with his wife's infidelity and has to find a way to reconcile his desire for revenge with his faith and beliefs. The third act sermon we learn whether he succeeds is terribly poignant, yet somehow there remains an edge of cynicism it is hard to escape. The controversy, the subject matter and Verdi's brilliance make the character of Stiffelio one of the composer's most powerful and affecting. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Approx. running time 2 hours 45 minutes
