• THE ELIXIR OF LOVE - OPERA THEATRE COMPANY

    Sat 28th of November

    Famous for its spellbinding music and sublime arias, Donizetti’s ever-popular romantic comedy, The Elixir of Love has it all, from unrequited love, to deception and thwarted passion.

    Desperately in love with the beautiful Adina, Nemorino is conned by fraudster Dr Dulcamara to buy some fake love potion, pledging himself to the army in order to pay for it.

    “...among the most unaffectedly heart-warming, well thought out L’Elisirs you could hope for.” OPERA NOW

     

  • THE TRIALS OF GALILEO - TIM HARDY

    Icarus Theatre

    “The Universe is a divine miracle Galileo, not a clockwork toy! 'Proof' denies faith, and without faith we are nothing."

    This reprimand of Pope Urban contained Galileo's tragedy – a mistaken belief that all he had to do was show his reasoning and evidence and the church would fall in behind him.

    This one-man rollercoaster stars Tim Hardy, veteran of The Royal Shakespeare Company.
