Pagliacci (The Clowns)

Osud (Destiny)

Leoncavallo A shot of pure operatic adrenaline

Janáček A tale of the anguish of love

A touring theatre troupe prepares for a show but when the play is derailed by real life passion, the stage becomes the scene of a violent reckoning. This operatic rollercoaster includes some of the most famous music ever written for Italian opera.

The semi-autobiographical tale of the composer Živný, and his infatuation with his love Míla. This is a unique chance to experience Janáček’s cherished, yet rarely performed gem, and hear some of his most glorious music.

Cavalleria rusticana

Trouble in Tahiti

Mascagni A red-blooded tale of jealousy and revenge

Bernstein A satire on the American Dream

A soldier returns from the army to find his lover has married another man. A powder keg of passions is set to ignite in this gritty drama featuring the famous Easter Hymn and Intermezzo.

L’enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and the Magic Spells)

Sam and Dinah appear to have the perfect life in their little white house, but the American Dream soon turns sour in this witty satire on life in 1950s suburbia. With extraordinary music influenced by Broadway musical theatre, Hollywood and jazz.

Trial by Jury

Ravel A bewitching childhood fantasy

Gilbert & Sullivan A hilarious courtroom farce

Welcome to a magical world where the objects in a naughty child’s room come to life including a pair of singing cats and a talking armchair! This spellbinding opera will enchant adults and children alike.

Glamorous Angelina brings a court case against her intended husband, who jilts her before their wedding having realised she bores him intensely. A courtroom drama quickly leads to delightful farce in this comic opera.

When Inspector Tanner is called to investigate a ruthless murder at Mark’s Priory, the grand ancestral home of the Lebanon family, he quickly discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. The household is controlled by the family physician, the footmen behave more like guests than servants and the secretary Isla is afraid for her life. As Tanner moves closer to the heart of the mystery he uncovers a shocking and closely guarded secret… Following 10 years of The Agatha Christie Company and 2017’s acclaimed production of Ruth Rendell’s A Judgement in Stone, The Classic Thriller Company returns with a brand new adaption from the legendary ‘King of the detective thriller’, Edgar Wallace – the brains behind the iconic film, King Kong.

The hit 1960’s film starring Cliff Richard is now ‘the feel-good musical of the year’ (DAILY MAIL). In 1963 Cliff Richard and the Shadows took off on a joyous jaunt across Europe in a Routemaster bus in the film Summer Holiday. Now this iconic film is a toe tapping stage musical with Don and his fellow London Transport bus mechanics journeying through Paris, the Alps, Italy and then Greece, along the way picking up a girl group in a clappedout Morris Minor and a young American pop star on the run from her domineering mother! This hit-filled musical includes classics such as In the Country, Summer Holiday, Travellin’ Light, Bachelor Boy, Move It, Living Doll, The Young Ones and On the Beach.
