English Touring Opera: Lucrezia Borgia

English Touring Opera returns to Cheltenham with three great operas encompassing love and war, comedy and epic tragedy.

Lucrezia Borgia is a tragedy of great pathos. Donizetti created in Lucrezia one of his greatest roles - known as one of history’s most notorious poisoners, she is a cunning strategist and a loving mother at the same time, a complex women in a dangerous situation.

Giulio Cesare, Handel’s retelling of Caesar’s relationship with Cleopatra, is a majestic opera, in which the characters are driven to extreme feelings and actions, and in which the music strikes at the heart.

Il viaggio a Reims is set in a provincial hotel, where guests from all over Europe are stranded on their way to a coronation. Lost luggage, intrigue, politics and romance all play their part in Rossini’s last Italian opera.

Unusually, each opera is performed on period instruments in partnership with the much-praised Old Street Band.
