The world-renowned English Touring Opera will return to Buxton with three titles Iphigénie en Tauride, Don Giovanni and Pia de’ Tolomei.
Iphigénie en Tauride by Gluck features vampire-like villains and human sacrifice forming a
bloodthirsty backdrop to an opera based on a famous story from Greek mythology. The production will be staged on April 22 at 7.30pm.
The following night offers Don Giovanni by Mozart which tells the story of a young, arrogant,and sexually promiscuous nobleman, who abuses and outrages everyone until he encounters something he cannot outwit. Whether you’re charmed or repelled by opera’s most charismatic anti-hero, you’ll have an adventure with Mozart’s otherworldly opera – from the magnificent score to its chilling conclusion.
To conclude ETO’s visit to Buxton is Pia de’ Tolomei by Donizetti, which tells the story of a noblewoman locked in a tower in Tuscany by her jealous husband, whose heart has been poisoned by a friend. Based on Dante’s Inferno, the characters are drawn with extraordinary intensity. You can catch this production on Sunday, April 25 at 3pm.
