THE ELIXIR OF LOVE
Our 1950s Hollywood version of Donizetti'sThe Elixir of Love had rave reviews when it opened in February 2013, with the Telegraph saying, "the whole thing fizzes from start to finish", and has been delighting audiences with its technicolour romance ever since.

The show that started it all! Our inaugural production in November 2009 went on to three West End transfers, an Olivier Award, a WhatsOnStage award and UK and international tours. Featuring some of your favourite singers, both from the original cast and more recent revivals, La Boheme fittingly runs over Christmas.
16 December - 3 January
THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
Our final production of the season was our first opera at the King's Head Theatre in autumn 2010, Rossini's The Barber of Seville. Our adaptation is set in Jane Austen's England and its combination of gentle irony and laugh-out-loud comedy is the perfect antidote to the January blues.
