Bath Opera: La Sonnambula (The Sleepwalker)
21st February at 7:30 pm – 23rd February at 7:30 pm
Bath’s very own opera company is preparing for their next fully staged production in February. This coincides with a bright new makeover for the company as they take on one of the best loved operas in the repertoire.
The Italian opera composer Vincenzo Bellini was know as ‘The Swan of Catania’ because this beautiful long melodies. His fabulous opera La Sonnambula (The Sleepwalker) contains a feast of beautiful melodies, vocal fireworks and a hilarious plot.
The story revolves around a love triangle in which one of the lovers blots her copybook by being found in the wrong man’s bed. Only when it is discovered that she is a sleepwalker is her innocence eventually proved.
But, as you might expect from Bath Opera, this production is a little bit different. This updated and witty realisation of the story moves the action to a modern-day retirement home.
