Il Mondo Della Luna
By English Touring Opera

Tuesday 4 Nov, 7.30pm
ETO’s Autumn 2014 will be another collaboration with a period orchestra on two very different 18th century classics.Haydn’s Life on the Moon is a fast moving operatic treatment of Goldoni’s classic play. Larger than life characters, virtuosic playing and singing, and a witty new translation promise an evening of comedy to follow on the company’s well received 2007 production of Country Matters. In this opera the action is transferred to the moon when a young heiress and her maid team up to teach their miserly father/ master a lesson in conduct. The score includes some of Haydn’s finest vocal writing, including two wonderful, spirited, extended finales which anticipate Mozart and Beethoven.

£26, (£24.50 conc), £23 Friends, £45 Double Ticket, £10 Restricted View
