CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
From the shifting opening chords representing the depths of the Rhine, the musical and dramatic foundations are laid for this great saga of gods, dwarves, giants and mortals.
