The Silken Ladder & A Husband at the Door

Book Now


Mistaken identities, mismatched lovers, narrow escapes and unexpected undergarments….  Opera Alegria bring them all to Grimeborn for their new double bill of Rossini’s The Silken Ladder and Offenbach’s A Husband at the Door.  
Director Benjamin Newhouse-Smith sets both works in the same room, but eighty years apart, with new contemporary translations from Lindsay Bramley.
