Trapped, abandoned and completely helpless. How often have we felt the light of hope fade into darkness, and how frequently have we surrendered to melancholy and sadness? Lament opens a window into the mind of Ariadne, presenting a unique and brand new operatic sound world to express her feeling and action. Abandoned by her love, she longs for death and thinks her world will cease. But the sun always rises, and her Lament becomes a path to new hope and rejuvenation.
Opera returns to Arcola Theatre with an expanded Grimeborn Festival, once again featuring a mix of new works with classics and rarely performed works. Now in its seventh year, Grimeborn is dedicated to celebrating the world of Opera while also making it accessible to both new and established audiences.
Grimeborn is bigger than ever before. This year’s festival will take place in both Studios, allowing each production to add more performances. Additionally, there will be a few one-off concerts and operas on selected dates.
“Grimeborn Opera is in serious danger
of becoming a bit of an institution”
Andrew Clements, The Guardian
