A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum
By DMTC

Wed 29 Oct - Sat 1 Nov, 7.15pm (+ Sat 2.15pm)
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart

Join DMTC on a journey back in time - to Rome, with its Roman legions, eunuchs and virgins, soldiers and slaves, stunning surprises, cunning disguises, panderers, philanderers, mistakes, fakes, rhymes, mimes - and a happy ending, of course. It’s something amazing, something amusing, something for everyone: musical comedy tonight.

A Roman slave strikes a bargain with his love-struck young master. In exchange for his freedom, the scheming servant will let the young man meet the beautiful maiden he’s admired from afar. So what if she’s been promised to a jealous (and gigantic) warrior? He will try anything to be free, and the result according to the New York Post is ‘one of those few terrific evenings which really can send you home dancing… you’ll laugh your togas off’.

Durham Musical Theatre Company brings Broadway’s funniest musical comedy to Gala. This uproarious romp will contrast with recent successes, A Tale of Two Cities and Sweeney Todd.

Life On The Moon
By English Touring Opera

Tuesday 4 Nov, 7.30pm
Fresh from beating Placido Domingo and Joyce DiDonato to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, English Touring Opera returns to Durham with a season of Georgian splendour. These two masterpieces are wildly different. One is lofty and heartbreaking, the other a razor-sharp comedy. Both are performed in English, with The Old Street Band, ETO’s acclaimed baroque period orchestra.

Cal McCrystal, the comedy director behind the National Theatre’s smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors, directs this new production. In its day, this fast-moving comedy was the most popular of Haydn’s many operas, matching the composer’s virtuosic music with the mischievous wit of playwright Carlo Goldoni. To trick a lecherous scrooge, an ‘astronomer’ sets up an elaborate charade and tricks him into believing he has flown to the moon.

Ottone
By English Touring Opera

Wednesday 5 Nov, 7.30pm
Fresh from beating Placido Domingo and Joyce DiDonato to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, English Touring Opera returns to Durham with a season of Georgian splendour. These two masterpieces are wildly different. One is lofty and heartbreaking, the other a razor-sharp comedy. Both are performed in English, with The Old Street Band, ETO’s acclaimed baroque period orchestra.

Handel’s sophisticated comedy Agrippina was a hit for ETO in Durham last year. Now the company presents one of the composer’s most successful serious operas. Written for the greatest Italian singers of the day, Ottone dazzled London with its brilliant arias. This romantic and tragic tale of a German Emperor in Rome, overcoming battles on land and sea to wed his Byzantine bride, features unusual psychological complexity and a dramatic sea cave setting.
