We’re delighted to host The English Touring Opera for a weekend of opera (20-21 May) featuring its spring tour shows of La Bohème (Puccini) and The Golden Cockerel (Rimsky-Korsakov). To celebrate this fantastic weekend of music and drama, we have an amazing offer. If you buy both shows together, you will receive £10 off your ticket price for any seat in bands A-C. 

Since 1979, English Touring Opera has toured outstanding live productions and impactful education and community projects to more towns and cities than any other UK opera company. At the heart of their ethos is making exceptional artistic experiences available and accessible to everyone. 

Fantasy, mischief and musical delight combine in the lively new production of The Golden Cockerel, the final and favourite opera of Rimsky-Korsakov. 

The Golden Cockerel is sung in English rhyming couplets, and there are surtitles so that you do not miss the wit in this hilarious satirical comedy! 

Based on a poem by Alexander Pushkin, the opera is packed with the exotic orchestration that has made similar works such as Scheherezade so popular. A daring satire on the last days of the Romanov dynasty and imperial decline, The Golden Cockerel is as biting as it is charming. 

Puccini’s La Bohème is a story of young love, opening on Christmas Eve in a Parisian garret, where two lovers meet on a snowy night. Told with the most memorable music, it is a classic tale of romance, friendship and mortality that captures the poetry and poverty of 19th century Paris. 

The show is in period dress and with poetic designs, sung in Italian, promises to break every heart and breathe joy into the spirit of everyone who has ever wanted love. 

Both these operas will provide devotees and those new to the genre with the stories, the music and the spectacle that can’t be missed. The Golden Cockerel and La Bohème arrive are at Norwich Theatre Royal from 20 – 21 May. Make it a weekend to remember by booking a spot in our restaurant Prelude.
