    Pikovaya Dama

    Tchaikovsky

    Sept 2022

    Oscillating between his feelings for Liza and a dark obsession, Hermann loses himself in a world where the illusions of the card game, his consuming passion, and the threat of fate produce music as poetic as it is sumptuous.

    Der rosen­kavalier

    Strauss

    Oct - Nov 2022

    A bittersweet comedy in which feelings of nostalgia and lost love are bathed in a lyrical and delicate musical setting. The sublime meeting of reason and emotion, with a heaping helping of reverie and humour.

    On purge bébé

    Boesmans

    Dec 2022

    Colourful opera adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s eponymous vaudeville play. Chamber pots are smashed to smithereens as two parents try to deal with their constipated (and tyrannical) son. Perfect for brightening up the end-of-year festivities.

    Nos

    Shostakovich

    June - July 2023

    What happens when a nose decides to leave its owner and take on a life of its own? This surrealistic play, a satirical take on Russian society in the 1920s, is sparkling and delightfully over the top.
