CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

Details

Zanetto is a sweetly moving, gorgeously scored miniature to open our double bill. It is a long way from the gritty world of Cavalleria rusticana, Mascagni's storming debut in opera; this was a composer who ranged happily across many genres in his musical journey, and Zanetto is another curiosity in his canon. It tells of an encounter between a beautiful courtesan and a young wandering minstrel, which leads to love, sacrifice and pain. The music is gentle and resonant, and there are just two singers. New Production. Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Performers Patricia Orr (Zanetto), Janice Watson (Sylvia).
