A revival of ETO’s warm-hearted production of Handel’s Xerxes, relocating a Venetian account of a Persian anti-hero to Britain in the second world war. The score is absolutely Handel at his best, sometimes fiery and even explosive, at other times deeply touching, including one of his most famous melodies, the aria Ombra mai fu.
Julia Riley, Clint van der Linde, Laura Mitchell and Andrew Slater return in their original roles, with Pater Brathwaite and Galina Averina in her company debut, and Jonathan Kenny directing the spitfire brilliance of the Old Street Band.
Tickets £26 (£24.50 concession) from Gala Theatre Box Office (0300 266600 www.galadurham.co.uk)
