ETO The Golden Cockerel

ETO The Golden Cockerel

Fantasy, mischief and musical delight combine in English Touring Opera’s lively new production of The Golden Cockerel, the final and favourite opera of Rimsky-Korsakov.

Based on a poem by Alexander Pushkin, The Golden Cockerel is a daring satire on the last days of the Romanov empire, and in particular the debacle of the Russo-Japanese War. Packed with the exotic orchestration that has made Rimsky-Korsakov’s music so popular, The Golden Cockerel is as explosive as it is charming.
