Arcola Theatre announces 2017 Grimeborn Opera Festival

See opera differently at Grimeborn, the festival which runs from 5th July – 2nd September 2017 at the Arcola Theatre in London.

Now in its eleventh year, Grimeborn returns with 14 exciting productions.

Rarely-performed pieces. Reinvigorated classics. Brand new works from some of the UK’s most exciting up-and- coming artists and companies. There’s something for opera veterans and virgins alike.

Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen said: “I’m thrilled to announce Arcola’s new season, which features the eleventh edition of our Grimeborn Opera Festival. Later in the year, Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose comes to Arcola for the first time with a major new English version of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. This is an exciting time at Arcola. Having just retained our place in Arts Council England’s National Portfolio, we are able to produce more new works from raw talent, reimagined classics and ambitious plays from thrilling contemporary voices. I look forward to welcoming you to Arcola again soon.”
