Sat 4 & Thu 9 March 2017, 7.30pm
Puccini’s visceral depiction of love in the midst of a war-torn Rome, Tosca is one of the world’s best-loved operas, brimming with lust, corruption and political intrigue. When the painter Cavaradossi helps a fugitive escape, he attracts the attention of Scarpia, the malevolent chief of police. What will Tosca be prepared to sacrifice to save her lover from his fate.
Tosca: 2 hours 25 minutes including one 20-minute interval
Gilbert & Sullivan’s PATIENCE
Wed 8 & Fri 10 March 2017, 7.30pm
Patience pokes fun at the eccentric affectations of barely-disguised Victorian celebrities, including Oscar Wilde and his followers. Willowy poets, sighing maidens, hearty milkmaids and burly officers – all become targets of Gilbert and Sullivan’s razor-sharp wit. Expect plenty of tunes and humour as fresh today as it was at the first performance.
Patience: 2 hours 20 minutes including one 20-minute interval
