CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

Handel - Judas Maccabaeus

Composed in the wake of the last pitched battle fought on British soil - the putting-down at Culloden of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion - Handel's oratorio recounts a tale of military prowess on the part of the Israelites of biblical times, with whom Protestant England was keen to identify. Under the direction of Laurence Cummings - Music Director of the Handel festivals in London and Gottingen - the distinguished line-up of soloists is headed by John Mark Ainsley, a stylish and much-admired Handelian, here tackling a role long considered the pinnacle of the tenor repertoire. There will be one interval. Finish time: approx. 22:20
