Not About Heroes
By Blackeyed Theatre in association South Hill Park

Through the letters and poems of the two men, this acclaimed play paints a vivid and moving picture of their friendship and the conflict that brought them together. One hundred years on from the beginning of the First World War, the play is exhilarating and uncompromising in its exploration of love, war and a friendship that changed the face of British poetry. Suitable for age 13+

  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.
