WHARTON GOES TO THE OPERA PART 2!
Our English National Opera event for La Traviata on 2 November sold out within 24 hours. However, ENO have created another event for us.
t will be held on 11 October and will be the award-winning production of Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten. This production directed by David Alden won the prestigious South Bank award when it premiered at ENO. It will be directed by ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins and features an exceptional cast.
This opera has a special place in ENO history as it had its world premiere in June 1945 at ENO's predecessor company, Sadler's Wells Opera, at the reopening of the theatre at the end of World War II.
Featuring some of the most powerful and evocative opera music ever written, Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes paints a vivid picture of a small community’s transformation into a hateful mob in the face of a local tragedy.
Peter Grimes’ apprentice goes missing in mysterious circumstances. The townspeople’s mistrust of the fisherman then turns into something far darker. Gossip becomes suspicion. Suspicion descends into accusation. The villagers come together with devastating consequences to confront the outsider Grimes.
The evening will include prime seats at the Coliseum as well as a tour of the house, bowl food, soft drinks, and wine in a private room, an opera programme, and a dedicated staff to provide hospitality.
Attendance to this event is limited to 20 and booking is on a first- come-first-served basis.
PLEASE BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AS THIS EVENT IS LIKELY TO SELL OUT AS WELL.
