With the women of the village abandoned by their menfolk, the opportunistic Ory spies his chance to woo the beautiful Adele. With his band of rogues behind him, he sets about plotting how to win her over. But with deception and desire in the air, the road to love proves less than smooth…

Opera Alegría (Rita, L’Heure Espagnole) return to Grimeborn for a fourth year, with a full-length production of Rossini’s dazzling comic opera, Count Ory.

Performed in English without surtitles.


★★★★ “Count Ory is funny, accessible to newbies and deadly serious in honouring the music of its source”BroadwayWorld

★★★★ “The tone is refreshingly light and firmly tongue in cheek, the music making is unrepentantly good stuff”TheatreCat

★★★★ “An excellent production and just the sort of piece that belongs so well in the Grimeborn season.”PlaysToSee
