Celebrating all things Albert! Here are some pictures from our recent production of Britten’s comic, subversive opera, Albert Herring.
Can you imagine what time-travellers from the 1950s would think of the present day? Visitors from the past arrive, complete with their preserved ideas of morality and social morals, fossilized in their own 50’s imaginations.
Why have one #AlbertHerring when you can have two? Well done to everyone involved in our production of #Britten’s comic opera directed by Martin Constantine – toi toi toi for the final show tonight 7pm! More photos to follow.
