The resilience of the Chamber Opera of Chicago is never in doubt as the company stick at their operetta adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion to the end, working hard to bring in at just under three hours.

Seen in preview at the Assembly Rooms, where it has three full performances (Friday 7 – Sunday 9 August 2015), Persuasion has all the feel of a piece which has found its spiritual home.
