Opera Alegria

The Silken Ladder & A Husband at the Door

Directed by Benjamin Newhouse-Smith

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.
