I love Austen’s work and am fascinated by the times in which she lived, so I managed to get to one or two things to mark the anniversary, but one show I really do wish I’d been able to include in that was Sara Pascoe’s adaptation of the classic Pride and Prejudice.
After success last summer, Chamber Opera Tours returns to London with its original musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved final novel Persuasion, commemorating the 200th anniversary of Austen’s death and its publication. It’s on for one night only, as part of the Camden Fringe Festival, on Monday 31 July 2017.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife! It also seemed to be acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice had landed at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre this week, as a healthy house full of enthusiastic theatregoers packed the auditorium to see the popular period piece.
Chamber Opera Chicago, a professional not-for-profit opera company devoted to making great opera and musical theatre affordable, is excited to be performing its original musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s PERSUASION throughout the UK and Scotland this month, including a one-off performance at London’s Shaw Theatre on Wednesday 27 July 2016.
