ETO presents one of the best-loved of all operas alongside two extraordinary, little-known jewels of Italian opera composed by bel canto virtuoso, Gaetano Donizetti.
ETO last toured La bohème over ten years ago; this season’s new production of Puccini’s masterpiece is directed by James Conway and features some of the most exciting emerging lyric singers in the UK.
Zoltán Kodály: Missa brevis
Carl Orff: Carmina Burana
Carmina Burana is one of the most iconic choral works of the 20th century.
Its opening chorus, O Fortuna, is well-known to audiences of all ages.
Composed in 1936, Orff based the work on a series of 24 secular medieval poems, which cover a range of subjects including the perils of drinking, gluttony and lust.
