Don’t miss the chance to see the first complete performance of this work by the composer of some of the world’s best-loved operas – La bohème, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, Turandot… Discover this fascinating work, with the ‘lost’ last act, by the young composer ‘on the road to genius’. Its passionate story has much in common with Carmen.

The distinguished cast is led by John Hudson, who has regularly sung the major Puccini tenor roles for ENO, WNO and Scottish Opera; by Mary Plazas, recently a sensational Madam Butterfly at ENO and by Gweneth-Ann Jeffers, whose roles have included Leonora (Forza and Trovatore), Aida, Senta, Amelia, Gutrune and Ariadne. Nicholas Jenkins conducts and Tony Baker directs the team that presented last season’s Mireille.

‘Extraordinary quality one has no right to expect from a modest-sized company… World-class singing.’

UK premiere of original four-act version, semi-staged and sung in Italian with English surtitles.
