King Priam

Event Date: 
17/05/2014 - 7:30pm
Venue: 
Northcott Theatre, Exeter

Troy is under siege. In the city, the old King recounts the events leading up to the war, waiting for his own death. All the familiar characters and stories – Hector and Achilles, Paris, Helen and the gods – are brought to life in this memorable meditation on the futility of war. Brilliant, insightful and musically gripping, King Priam is a prime example of British opera at its best.

Sung in English.

Paul Bunyan

Event Date:

Venue: 
Northcott Theatre, Exeter

Musically charming and dreamlike, this cross between an opera and a musical re-creates the great myth of the American frontier – peopled by a giant, singing geese and cats, dancing Swedes, lumberjacks, and good and bad cooks.  The score is brilliantly inventive, mixing elements of blues, folk songs and hymns in a witty and irreverent response to the American Dream.

Sung in English.
