Free drink and programme when you see ENO productions of The Elixir of Love or The Marriage of Figaro
Sunday 28 August 2011
Jonathan Miller’s triumphant staging of Donizetti’s comic masterpiece 'The Elixir of Love' returns to the London Coliseum this September for a limited run of only nine performances, while Fiona Shaw brings her unique creative flair to a major new production of Mozart’s immensely popular classic 'The Marriage of Figaro' in October.
First time round, both critics and audiences alike greeted Miller’s charming new take on this classic romantic comedy, with rave reviews. Now, new life is breathed into the production with a vibrant cast including celebrated soprano Sarah Tynan, fast rising star Ben Johnson and the inimitable Andrew Shore. They are joined by the hugely talented young British conductor Rory Macdonald.
'The Marriage of Figaro', meanwhile, is one of the most frequently performed operas, with music that is cherished and loved by audiences everywhere. This much-anticipated new staging is conducted by former ENO Music Director Paul Daniel, who returns to ENO to lead a talented, youthful and predominantly British cast, which includes Iain Paterson, Kate Valentine, Devon Guthrie and Roland Wood.
