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 ;-)

Production details

A new English verison by Robin Norton-Hale with piano accompaniment. The Barber of Seville has been transported to Jane Austen's England, a world of eligible bachelors, feisty heroines and snobbish relations familiar from much-loved BBC costume dramas.
