Plenty more information has come out since my last post about Birmingham Opera Company‘s forthcoming production of Mozart’s King Idomeneo.
Firstly, the first performance will be on 12 August but there’s a free dress rehearsal taking place on Sunday 10 August at 7pm.Â If you’d like to go down to that then email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
The production will be a walkabout affair allowing the audience to ‘move with the action around the performance space’.Â Comfy shoes are recommended because it’s a 3 hour performance (with interval).
The venue is an abandoned rubber factory just off Ladywood Middleway (directions are here).Â Here’s what the place looked like a little while ago:
The Birmingham Opera Design Trust blog has profiles of the people involved in bringing this production to life as well as the odd tidbit about how things are coming together and is worth a read.
