FLEXIBLE BOOKINGS

An unmissable opera double bill.

Join us on 22nd July 2022 for Trial By Jury opera double bill with Iolanthe at Thorington Theatre. An unmissable double bill of opera - bring a picnic for the interval and really make an evening of it!

Can you take someone to court for breaking off an engagement at the last moment? In the hilariously ludicrous one-act operetta, Trial by Jury, the jilted Angelina does just that! Originally written to accompany Offenbach’s La Périchole, Trial by Jury provides fun and frantic entertainment for all.

Following the interval, prepare for pandemonium with Iolanthe, a brand new production from Opera Anywhere! This ingeniously witty and magical operetta is a tale of forbidden love between fairies and mortals – peers of the House of Lords, no less! Strephon is the half-fairy, half-mortal son of the fairy Iolanthe and has fallen in love with Phyllis, a ward of the court. But for them to marry, Phyllis needs the Lord Chancellor’s permission, which is going to be tricky as he hopes to marry her himself – as do half the house of Lords! It’s Gilbert & Sullivan at their satirical best poking fun at power, privilege and parliamentary democracy.

Suitable for all ages, this opera is sure to leave you laughing and whistling all the way home.

Thorington Theatre is a magical new open air woodland theatre in Suffolk. There is a bar serving refreshments and free parking; you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy before the show. Doors open 45 minutes before each show. For more information please follow @thoringtontheatre.
