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.
In the brooding atmosphere of the 15th Century Ottoman Court the tyrannical Tamerlano holds prisoner the defeated Bajazet and his daughter Asteria. As their story unfolds Handel's vividly descriptive music is inspired by the emotional conflicts inherent in Tamerlano's position of absolute power over Bajazet while at the same time being in love with his daughter. Resolve, faithfulness, rage, adoration, defiance, revenge and despair are all present, expressed through music of exceptional power and beauty.
