OPERA IN THE CITY FESTIVAL
​1 - 12 August 2017

This summer, the Bridewell Theatre in the heart of the City of London will become the home of new and innovative opera productions.
 
The two-weeks 'Opera in the City Festival' is curated by Time Zone Theatre Ltd and their artistic director Pamela Schermann, and will present a range of operatic works. In the exciting performance space of the Bridewell Theatre, the festival will show innovative takes on rarely performed masterpieces as well as new and experimental work. The focus lies on theatrical pieces with a strong narrative which will appeal to both regular opera audiences and those new to opera.
 
One of the highlights of the festival is the project “Fin de Siècle“ which presents works composed around 1900. This series is spearheaded by Time Zone Theatre’s acclaimed production of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera Mozart & Salieri, which premiered in 2016 and will finish its UK Tour with their final three performances in London at the Bridewell Theatre, and includes new productions of Alexander Zemlinsky's A Florentine Tragedy and Pietro Mascagni's Zanetto
