CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Stanislaw Moniuszko's opera is known as one of the greatest 19th century Polish opera scores, with imaginative harmonies and colourful instrumentation. Written after the 1864 January Uprisings, Moniuszko set out to create an opera to raise the nation's spirits, bringing patriotic knights in armour onto the stage. The result is a grand-scale drama in which follows two brothers, Stefan and Zbigniew, as they venture out to the cursed, haunted Kalinowo Manor. However they soon discover the real danger lies not with the ghosts, but with the two beautiful Sword-bearers' daughters.Performers Tim Hicks, Jeremy Bowyer, James Edwards, Maria Jones, Saffron van Zwanenburg, Mark Saberton, William Molesworth, Erin Johnson, Michael Burke.
