What happens when you fall for someone that you’re forbidden to love?
This is the story of two star-crossed lovers, but not as you know it.
Performed in an intimate setting, Shakespeare’s greatest love story is retold through music from eight of Handel’s best-loved works.
Follow our young couples through the ages as they navigate love, secrecy and loss.
Performed by a student cast and orchestra from Leeds College of Music, prepare to experience a brand new version of this story as you’ve never heard it before.
Combining Shakespeare’s text with music in English and Italian, this production breaks with convention of the traditional operatic form, and explores perceptions of gender, identity and sexuality.
Director: Sophie Gilpin
