La Traviata

The acclaimed company behind the Olivier Award nominated (‘Best New Opera, 2018’) production of La bohème present a radical reimagining of Verdi’s incendiary tale of sex, class and power, La Traviata. England, 2018. Violetta earns her crust dancing for the rich and powerful at an exclusive gentleman’s club until a chance meeting with naive and idealistic Elijah changes everything. The powerful collide with the powerless, with earth shattering consequences for all involved. Combining Verdi’s breathtaking music with a new English version from Becca Marriott and Helena Jackson, this is La Traviata exposed, uncovered and redefined for the twenty first century.

  • Becca Marriott, Gemma Morsley, Oliver Brignall, Michael Georgiou (all 7pm unless specified otherwise) 29th Sept, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 9th, 11th, 13th (3.30), 15th, 17th, 19th, 20th, 23rd, 25th, 27th (3.30) October.

Die Fledermaus

Die Fledermaus, Wilton's Music Hall

Eisenstein, his wife, maid, and his friends all end up at Prince Orlofsky's ball independently, in disguise, carrying their own deceits and motivations for being there. Others, too, have their reasons and everybody is looking to catch each other out for improprieties in a series of hilarious and touching assignations. As the characters are brought together in various guises, we set the scene for a hilarious story of mistaken identity full of splendour, posh frocks and masks.

Centred around the extravagant ball, the events of Die Fledermaus are set to a rich, romantic score by Johann Strauss II featuring some of the most irresistible melodies ever written for the stage. Strauss embellishes the opera with a vivid palette of waltzes, duets and orchestral pizazz that is hard to match. The operetta genre reached a pinnacle in Die Fledermaus and it is simply a wonderful way to spend an evening in the theatre.

Running time: 1hr 47mins, with a 20min interval

Tosca, The King's Head Theatre

Paris. August, 1944. As the Second World War rages on, lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi give refuge to a political prisoner and find themselves ensnared in the machinations of the tyrannical head of the Paris Gestapo, Scarpia. As Charles De Gaulle’s liberation movement advances and US troops tighten their net around the Nazi occupiers, everything Tosca holds dear is about to be torn apart.

 

A searing thriller of power and passion, this modern retelling takes the timeless tale and reimagines it at the heart of the twentieth century’s defining conflict. With stirring melodies and a brand-new libretto in English by Becca Marriott and Adam Spreadbury-Maher, performed in the intimate surroundings of the King’s Head Theatre, this is Tosca as you’ve never seen it before.

Il Pimpinone

Il Pimpinone, Aegina International Music Festival

Wealthy, fashion-conscious but lonely, Pimpinone engages a maidservant, falls for her and marries her. Vespetta, aptly named, quickly turns everything to her advantage. Having gained access to his heart, she then systematically does likewise to the keys to the larder, the wine-cellar and the money-chest. Finally, she gains her freedom, too, and the marriage is conducted entirely on her own terms, as hapless, but foolish Pimpinone is forced to capitulate to her every whim.
