Don’t miss the world premiere of a witty new recycled opera. Sir David Pountney skilfully assembles Henry Purcell’s music to create a fantastical tale of power and the demise of the planet. Brace yourself as a tyrannical climate-denying ruler unleashes chaos on the planet until an eco-warrior arrives to save the day. But can nature fight back?
Inspired by the ‘masque’ (the 17th century equivalent of a variety show!) expect a unique performance of song, dance and spectacle. Taking place on a repurposed set, featuring re-used costumes and props, this recycled opera is the star of Opera North’s Green Season.
Music by Henry Purcell
Libretto assembled and adapted by Sir David Pountney
Part of Opera North’s Green Season.
