The Autumn Programme 2019
A comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and the libretto by W. S. Gilbert. The story concerns Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates.
Mendelssohn’s dramatic ‘Scottish’ symphony evokes historic tragedy and grandeur through opulent melody and Dvorak’s much-loved symphony is a potent blend of longing for his Czech homeland and inspiration from his American sojourn.
Shocked Victorians! Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation.
This wonderful evening features music from Mozart, Brahms and Tchaikovsky, including the return of one of our favourite guest soloists, violinist Bartosz Woroch.
A classic night of Ayckbourn. Few plays expose the pressures of the festive season to such devastating effect: it's as if all your worst Christmases have arrived at once.
