THE English Touring Opera (ETO) is bringing two works to Lighthouse Poole next month – Handel’s Giulio Cesare, and Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia – as part of a national tour.
It is ETO’s first season under the leadership of new general director Robin Norton-Hale and he said: “This hugely ambitious season demands virtuosic singing and exceptional dramatic ability from our casts, in stories encompassing farce, social satire, political intrigue and epic tragedy. Audiences can expect musical and dramatic fireworks!”
Period-instrument specialists The Old Street Band will play for both performances.
Guilia Cesare is on Friday, 10 March, at 7.30pm, and Lucrezia Borgia on Saturday, 11 March, at 7.30pm.
