Arnold: The Dancing Master | Donizetti: I pazzi per progetto

Event Details

2nd March, 2015
Silk Street Theatre, Guildhall School
£25 (£15 concessions, £5 Guildhall staff and students)

The Guildhall School’s award-winning Opera department presents a double bill of comic opera in which madness, misunderstandings and mistaken identity come to the fore.

Sir Malcolm Arnold’s The Dancing Master (1952) with a libretto by Joe Mendoza, receives its long overdue world stage premiere eight years after the composer’s death. Based on Wycherley’s bawdy Restoration comedy, the plot follows the heroine, Miranda, and her two suitors, while the score fizzes with Arnold’s customary wit and flamboyance.

Donizetti’s I pazzi per progetto (Madmen by Design) is farce in its purest form – here receiving its UK stage premiere.
