A cautionary tale for us all, The Rake's Progress follows the fortunes of work-shy Tom. Under the influence of the dastardly Nick Shadow, he sets off on a journey of hedonistic self-indulgence that can only lead to ruin! Inspired by the famous etchings by Hogarth. New Production. Sung in English with surtitles. Approx running time 3 hours.
