We are sorry to announce that English Touring Opera’s season of work at Hackney Empire, including all performances of The Turn of the Screw, The Knot Garden and Greek will no longer take place in October 2020. We are working with ETO to arrange an alternative presentation for the Autumn period, which will take place instead of these shows. Please click here for a statement from ETO regarding this.
It’s the 1980’s and we’re in the East End of London. Spoiler alert… Eddy, our main character, murders his father and marries his mother. This is a rowdy, comical and full-throttled re-imagining of the Oedipus myth.
Greek is a powerful opera by Mark-Anthony Turnage, based on the play by Stephen Berkoff. ETO’s new production is directed by Jonathan Moore, who has worked with Turnage from Greek’s inception. Conducted by Tim Anderson.
This is obviously a very challenging time for us as an organisation and we would ask you to bear with us until we are able to confirm the new repertoire. We will contact you again as soon as we have the details of the new performances confirmed. If you need any clarity on this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
