English Touring Opera: Spring 23 Tour

27 March @ 7:30 pm - 28 March @ 7:30 pm


English Touring Opera returns to Durham with two new productions encompassing love and war, comedy and epic tragedy. Each opera is performed on period instruments in partnership with the much-praised Old Street Band.

Intrigue, politics, romance and lost luggage all play their part in Rossini’s great comic opera, Il viaggio a Reims in a new production directed by Valentina Ceschi, as travellers from all over Europe find themselves stranded at a provincial inn on their way to a great coronation.

Lucrezia Borgia is a tragedy of great pathos, led by one of Donizetti’s greatest roles – known to history as of history’s most famous poisoners, Lucrezia is a complex woman in a dangerous situation, a cunning strategist and a loving mother at the same time. Eloise Lally directs this new production.
