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.

Bodmin, 1844 and Charlotte Dymond is murdered in cold blood. Someone must hang for it - but who? Pascoe and Hill's haunting opera explores a tale of murder, jealousy and betrayal that shattered a once peaceful Cornish community. Matthew Weeks was tried for the murder and 20,000 Cornishmen travelled to Bodmin jail to see him hang. But when researching the murder in 1978, Pat Munn, a Cornish academic and historian, sifted through the evidence and made some alarming discoveries. Influenced by her book and the BBC documentary which followed, Pascoe and Hill have created a powerful opera, which questions Weeks' guilt, whilst also pointing the finger of blame elsewhere. A miscarriage of justice? The Murder of Charlotte Dymond promises to fuel the debate which continues to divide opinion after 150 years. World Premiere - Russell Pascoe and Christopher William Hill have created a mysterious new opera based on the true story.

Performers Suzanne Manuell (mezzo-soprano), Helen Astrid (soprano), Deryck Hamon (bass baritone), Mark Jacques (baritone).
Music Russell Pascoe. Lyrics Christopher William Hill. Company Music Theatre Kernow. Conductor David Frost. Director Clare Prenton. Design Ruth Patton. Lighting Adam Crosthwaite. Company The Cornish Sinfonia.
