The Birmingham Opera Company, which was faced with cuts to its funding not so long ago, will return to the stage next month with a production of Mozart’s Idomeneo.
As it says on the website:
We donâ€™t have an opera house and we donâ€™t work in conventional theatres. We conjure our theatres out of spaces used for other purposes or maybe just abandoned
Not arf.Â This time they’ve taken over the empty Sherborne Rubber Factory building just off Ladywood Middleway (map here).
There are a few details on the Birmingham Opera Company site but there’s more to come soon.Â Although it does say performances will be roughly every other day between 12 and 23 August and tickets will be on sale soon.
Head nod to the Audiences Central blog.
