Rossini’s Opera Seria in Concert
Tuesday 3 April 2018
Conductor John Andrews
In Spring 2018 English Touring Opera plans a concert of highlights from Rossini’s greatest operas - his serious ones! These were the operas of which Rossini was most proud, and which contain his most brilliant writing for orchestra, and his most challenging vocal fireworks. John Andrews will conduct the full ETO orchestra in exciting scenes from Rossini’s Otello (including his melting Willow Song), La Donna del Lago (a Walter Scott feast), Maometto II (the most testing of them all), Elisabetta (the story of Queen Elizabeth I of England) and Ermione.
Sung in Italian. There will be a pre-show talk.
Mozart The Marriage of Figaro
Wednesday 4 April 2018
Director Blanche McIntyre
Conductor Christopher Stark
English Touring Opera presents an energetic new production of one of the world’s most beloved operas, Mozart’s classic comedy The Marriage of Figaro
. During the course of one eventful day, Figaro and Susanna must overcome every obstacle put in their way by Count Almaviva and his cronies before they can finally be united as man and wife. Blanche McIntyre (Tosca, 2017) returns to direct this most warm-hearted of operas, equally acclaimed for its sublime music and huge sense of fun.
Sung in English with surtitles. There will be a pre-show talk.
