The Longborough Festival Opera presents a new semi-staged production of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s 'Die tote Stadt'.
A dangerous obsession with the past threatens to become deadly, as Paul struggles with unsettling dreams in this thrilling opera noir by one of history’s most remarkable composer-prodigies.
Acclaimed conductor Justin Brown and director Carmen Jakobi lead a semi-staged production of this rarely performed work.
Korngold’s 'Die tote Stadt' will involve the Longborough Youth Chorus, following their successful debut in The Cunning Little Vixen during the 2021 season.
Longborough Festival Opera is an ambitious summer festival, taking place in a 500-seat home-grown theatre overlooking stunning views of the Evenlode valley.
Rooted in the Cotswolds, the festival inspires a growing international reputation and a vibrant year-round programme of community work.
