Fiddler on the Roof
Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick
Date: 4 June - 3 July
Possibly Grange Park Opera’s most ambitious production...ever. World superstar, Bryn Terfel, takes on the role of Reb Tevye, the milkman of a rural village in pre-revolutionary Russia.
Samson et Dalila
Date: 20 June - 16 July
One of the glories of French opera. Samson, mighty but vulnerable, is a complete sucker for protestations of love from the manipulative and conniving Dalila – hell-bent on revenge. But it is Samson who brings the house down.
Date: 6 June - 17 July
The world’s favourite opera – and it’s not hard to see why. The impoverished poet Rodolfo falls in love with seamstress Mimi. They live life to the full in their Parisian garret, but the course of love doesn’t always run smoothly. And in the end there’s a heartbreaking reckoning.
Date: 10 July - 18 July
It’s his most famous opera for a reason: it has it all. Feckless flaneur, Onegin – who breaks the heart of Tatyana only to realise that it is he who is the victim of love – has wonderful tunes and tear-jerking moments. This much-acclaimed production has sets that made even our most sophisticated audience applaud in 2013. Not to be missed.
