The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)

Performances will also be held during the previous week, Thur 20th -Sat 22th June.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a one and a half hour romp through, you guessed it, the complete works of The Bard. Some of his work, it has to be said, gets only a brief mention, but the rest is treated with an unsurpassed irreverence bordering on the insane. Featured works include a gory Titus Andronicus, a somewhat less than romantic Romeo and Juliet, the Othello rap and Hamlet performed in less than a minute. If you like Shakespeare you will like this. If you hate Shakespeare, you'll love it!

Tickets will be available online from 28th May2019.

If this is your first visit or your hundredth, La Boheme’s emotional charge is irresistible - and you certainly need those tissues!”

Opera in Oborne - Il segreto di Susanna.

Il segreto di Susanna.

What is Susanna hiding? Her husband’s suspicions are driving him wild. Will it destroy their marriage?  All is revealed in this hilarious 50 minutes of sparkling comic-opera at its tuneful best by Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari.  “Il Segreto”, with its contemporary plot and catchy tunes, is a great example of why he was one of the most performed opera composers of the 1900’s.

Opera Holloway: La Boheme

In a seaside town on the south coast in England, four young men are living the youthful dream, yearning for love and not working too hard. Their flat is run down, they're content to live on take-aways, they complain when they run out of money and have perfected the art of dodging the landlord. Their lives are filled with trips to the pub, late night dancing and girls. Until Mimi knocks on the door. Rodolfo opens it, eyes and hands meet and a passionate affair begins. Follow the impoverished lovers as their relationship unfurls, from it’s joyous beginnings to the bitter end on a chilly promenade. This contemporary new production of Puccini’s thrilling, passionate love story captures the raw, consuming power of young love, performed in Opera Holloway's intimate and immediate style. Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.
