CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


The opera is based on the life of French Actress Adrienne Lecouvreur (1692-1730) who rose from humble origins to become a leading lady at the Comedie Francaise. Adriana is caught between the attention of two lovers, one her manager, the other Maurizio, Count of Saxony. Unknowingly, she is trapped and poisoned by a rival in love. The drama reaches its poignant climax when, in the vane of true Italian tragedy, her lover returns to find Adriana dying and deluded, a victim of anger, jealousy and unrequited love.
