This event has passed.

Stravinsky: The Rake’s Progress

Igor Stravinsky’s brilliantly inventive opera is a masterful blend of farce and tragedy, and a powerful depiction of a young man’s fall.

Tom Rakewell leaves his quiet country life and his love Anne behind when the charming and sinister Nick Shadow offers him a bright new start in London. But Shadow’s promises aren’t all they seem, and Tom soon finds out that the devil makes work for idle hands.

Director: Polly Graham

Conductor: Jack Sheen

Performed in English.
