There are many events being held in the Theatre this March, with shows for a range of all ages. If you’re a fan of Abba, make sure you dust off your platforms, put on your flares and come along and enjoy an unforgettable night with Abbamania, on March 2nd. Or have a night in with the Opera, First performed in 1744 at Covent Garden, Handel’s Semele originally appeared as an Oratorio rather than an opera – and instantly caused a stir. The production used Congreve’s libretto based on Ovid’s Metamorphoses to bring to life the tragic tale of Semele’s ill-fated love for Jupiter the King of the Gods. Other shows include:
