RNCM Opera: Theodora at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 24 March–1 April 2017, from £21.00 - Book now

RNCM Opera tackles Handel’s penultimate oratorio, Theodora, this spring. It’s a rare chance to hear some of the composer’s most beautiful arias, duets and choruses, sung here in English. The opera follows Theodora, a young Christian woman, and her Roman lover, Didymus, who are locked in a dramatic battle to sacrifice themselves to save the other. It’s a moving storyline, which reflects numerous current conflicts around the globe. Directed by John Ramster and conducted by Roger Hamilton, this is one of three annual outings from the RNCM Opera – with their last production, of Offenbach’s La Vie Parisienne, nominated for a Manchester Theatre Award.
