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).

With it's intermingling of the serious and the comic, the world of Keiser's Croesus has much in common with that of Shakespeare's late comedies. The score is striking for it's sheer variety.

Running time 3 hours
