Show Information

A composer struggles as real life and make believe merge into one

Dublin, 1753. A frustrated and impoverished opera composer’s work goes into a spin when he falls for his lead castrato – but then the castrato elopes with the composer’s rich fiancée, causing chaos and catastrophe all round.

Gerald Barry’s operas are like no other – daring, surreal, and often laugh-out-loud funny. Almost 30 years after its premiere, director/designer Nigel Lowery’s new, messed-up Baroque production for Music Theatre Wales and Royal Opera House rediscovers The Intelligence Park’s zoo of emotions, characters and absurdities in a blurring of imagination and reality, as it explores notions of sexuality, creativity and obligation.
