Bloomsbury Opera "The Bear" at Goodenough College

The Opera is coming again to Goodenough College with "The Bear" composed by William Walton, being performed in the Great Hall of London House at 8pm on Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th February 2016. The production will be directed and performed by Members of the College.

Described as an “extravaganza in one act”, “The Bear” is based on the Anton Chekhov play of the same title. It brings together Russian drama and English / Italianate lyricism in a chamber-scale perfect storm. Set in 19th century Russia, the action takes place in the drawing room of Yelena Ivanovna Popova’s country house. When sun, mud and sweat invade Popova’s mourning for her dead husband, two worlds collide in an explosive battle of wills.

Tickets are £12 (£8 for concessions) and can be booked via Eventbrite here.

Doors open at 7:30pm and the performance lasts from 8pm - 10pm.
