English Touring Opera at the Everyman Theatre

Tuesday 24 – Saturday 28 April 2018

Rossini: Fireworks (Tue)
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

The Marriage of Figaro (Wed & Sat)
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

Il Tabarro & Gianni Schicchi (Thu & Fri)

Puccini's one-act operas Il tabarro and Gianni Schicchi could hardly be more different: one is a moody romance ending in a grotesque murder on a barge in Paris, and the other is a sparkling comedy about a family inheritance in Florence. First performed in 2011 to great critical acclaim, this double bill shows Puccini at his finest as a master of the theatre that speaks to the heart.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
