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.
This is a story of love and loss, of betrayal and deception, of sex and a city, of wounded pride and attempted retribution - of plumply inviting sofa cushions. Godofredo is naturally indolent, adequately successful in his working life and quite happy with his seemingly comfortable marriage to Ludovina. When he discovers her in an extremely compromising position on his favourite yellow sofa with his business partner Machado, he doesn't know how to react but knows he must do something. His honour has been off ended, he will have to challenge Machado to a duel, but he would much prefer life to return to normal. An original Glyndebourne commission.Performers Michael Wallace (Godofredo Alves), Gabriela Istoc (Lulu)), Alexander Robin Baker (Neto), Charlotte Beament (Teresa), Gareth Huw John (Nunes Vidal).
