CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.


Perhaps the first complete operatic setting of a Shakespeare play, The Comedy of Errors combines the genius of the formidable Lorenzo da Ponte with the dynamic music of Mozart's English protege, the remarkable Stephen Storace (1762-96). From the opening storm and shipwreck, through the mayhem of confusions caused by identical twins, to ultimate enlightenment, Storace's Figaro-like score bubbles over with brilliant energy and glorious melody.

Performers Nigel Lister, Johnson Willis, Susannah Van Den Berg, Eamonn O'Dwyer, Rupert Hill, Phylip Harries, Eric Potts, Polly Frame, Polly Maberly, Daniel Lloyd, Alex Parry, Esther Biddle.
