"...marvellous performances...absolutely superb" - The Courier on Xerxes

“A testament to the quality of the music-making at St Andrews.” - The Herald on The Turn of the Screw

 


Byre Opera’s production will offer a contemporary take on Handel’s classic tragicomedy, sung in Nicholas Hynter’s English translation. It will reunite the director-and-designer team of Tania Holland Williams and Gregor Donnelly who collaborated so successfully on The Turn of the Screw for Byre Opera two years ago, and will feature a period-instrument ensemble, The Fitzwilliam Band, and conducted by Michael Downes.
