ETO: Tamerlano (Pre-Show Talk)
October 22nd 6:30 pm
English Touring Opera return to Malvern with a celebration of the work of the greatest composer of opera in the UK, George Friderich Handel.
A gripping psychological contest between Tamerlano, the Emperor of the Tartars, and his captive Bajazet, Sultan of the Turks, Tamerlano is the most perfect of Handel’s operas and a true marriage of drama and music. It was written in a year of inspired creativity that also saw the composition of Giulio Cesare and Rodelinda, and also features one of the first major tenor roles in opera.
English Touring Opera present Tamerlano in a new production from Artistic Director James Conway, performed with ETO’s period instrument partners the Old Street Band.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
Pre-Show Talks each evening at 6.30pm. Numbers limited, please book in advance.
