Priority Booking: Please login to 'My Regent Account' at the top of this page before purchasing tickets. BORIS GODUNOV by Modest Mussorgsky - New Production Sung in an English translation with surtitles Runtime: 180 minutes including interval Coade Hall Theatre, Bryanston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PX With the chorus being the main protagonist in Boris Godunov, this great Russian epic with its roots based in historical fact, has been ‘edited’ by such musical luminaries as Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich. Nowadays, it is widely accepted that Mussorgsky’s unusual and original scoring should be observed. The 1869 version of the opera, tells of events after the death of the tyrant, Tsar Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible), whose rule left the people of Russia cowed, poor and ‘ruled by despots and dictators...’ In his desire to become Tsar himself, it is widely accepted that Boris was responsible for the ‘removal’ (presumably, death) of Ivan’s eldest son, but no one really knows what happened to his second child - although a Pretender to the throne did come forward. In the end, wracked with grief over what he has done, Boris Godunov gives us one of the greatest death scenes in all opera. The Dorset Opera Festival - in its 47th year - is the only organisation in the South West offering live grand opera in a Country House setting. It features internationally renowned soloists, a chorus of up to 80, and a full orchestra. It also offers a large marquee bar and you can purchase stand-alone picnic pavilions seating up to 10, individual picnic hampers, a 4-course dinner on 23, 24 & 25 July and full afternoon tea at the matinees on 23 & 25 July. The annual Opera Gala concert is on 24 July.

Priority Booking: Please login to 'My Regent Account' at the top of this page before purchasing tickets. LA RONDINE by Giacomo Puccini - New Production Sung in Italian with English surtitles Runtime: 190 minutes including interval Coade Hall Theatre, Bryanston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PX La rondine (The Swallow) was intended to be an ‘operetta’ - or at least, that’s what Puccini’s publisher had requested from him. Set in Paris, it tells the story of the beautiful ‘courtesan’, Magda, who is hosting a party for a few close friends. Her guests include a surprise visitor, Ruggero. Naturally, as with all Puccini operas, the two fall in love. They begin life together on the Riviera, but Magda is troubled by the thought of Ruggero, or his family, discovering her past life. Rather like Verdi’s Violetta and going against her ardent desires for the sake of Ruggero’s family name, she opts to return to Paris to the arms of her old admirer.
