An exciting double-bill of comedy and tragedy

opera nova

The themes of love and betrayal in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas are as relevant today as when the opera was first composed.  The drama goes straight to the heart and the everlasting quality of the music is evident in beautiful arias such as Dido’s lament (“When I am laid in earth”).  This fantastic masterpiece is not to be missed.

Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious comic opera, Trial by Jury, continues to delight audiences everywhere.  Poking fun at the English judicial system and set in a somewhat chaotic courtroom, Angelina is suing her former fiancé, Edwin, for breach of promise of marriage.  The music sparkles from beginning to end and is guaranteed to send you home with a spring in your step!
