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 ;-)


Shylock is a proud and defiant man. But when he demands a severe debt to be repaid he becomes a victim of his own intransigence and most seriously, the prejudice of others. Andr? Tchaikowsky was best known as a concert pianist but being a composer meant more to him. The Merchant of Venice is a potent attack on prejudice and feels like a deeply personal response to his experiences as a child in the Warsaw Ghetto. Opera in 3 Acts plus Epilogue.

Music Andre Tchaikowsky. Lyrics John O'Brien.
