SUMMARY

Vanessa is a woman who has waited 20 years in the depths of the country for her lover Anatol to return to her. But when Anatol arrives in the middle of a blizzard, all is not what it seems...

After an "outstanding" (Varsity) production of Mozart's Idomeneo, the iambe company returns with a fully staged production of Samuel Barber's gloriously beautiful and rarely performed Vanessa with a cast of brilliant young professional singers. One of the 20th century's most richly romantic operas, this intensely psychological work draws on influences as diverse as Puccini, Wagner and Chekov, and is imbued with Barber's characteristic nostalgic lyricism that is so powerful in his famous Adagio for Strings.

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to see a hidden jewel of the operatic repertoire!
