In a first for Newcastle theatre, NTC and Opera Hunter join forces for a special independent season.
The first half is a selection of the best-loved scenes and arias from opera in Opera Hunter’s twice-CONDA-nominated “Love, Life and Opera” series.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious “Trial by Jury” provides the second half of the program, a never-out-of-date poke at the judicial systems and vanity with a couple vying for justice over a broken of promise of marriage.
