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.


Perhaps the first complete operatic setting of a Shakespeare play, The Comedy of Errors combines the genius of the formidable Lorenzo da Ponte with the dynamic music of Mozart's English protege, the remarkable Stephen Storace (1762-96). From the opening storm and shipwreck, through the mayhem of confusions caused by identical twins, to ultimate enlightenment, Storace's Figaro-like score bubbles over with brilliant energy and glorious melody.

Music Stephen Storace. Lyrics Lorenzo da Ponte.
