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