An early Christmas gift from all of us at Longborough! This winter we will open the theatre for two socially distanced performances of a special production of Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, one of the best-loved operas of all time. Pagliacci tells the fatal story of a troupe of actors, whose performance is overtaken by real-life jealousy and revenge.
Following rave reviews of their London debut, Opera Ensemble (“an exemplary project” - Sunday Times) bring their new production to our theatre.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe, this 50-minute chamber staging features an all-star cast including Peter Auty, Elin Pritchard, Robert Hayward, Nicholas Lester and Aled Hall, led from the piano by Berrak Dyer.
This production will also be performed at the Grange Festival on 13 December.
“A pared-down Pagliacci that packs a punch”The Stage ★★★★
“more visceral, raw, genuinely ‘operatic’ power than any of the other lockdown offerings I have attended in the UK”Sunday Times
