A Spanish Hour on Thursday 15th November 2018
Thursday 15 November 7.30pm
Autumn 2018 sees MWO back on the road with the company’s second SmallStages tour, Ravel’s exhilarating one-act bedroom farce, The Spanish Hour (L’heure espagnole).
First performed in Paris in 1911, L’heure espagnole is set in a clock shop in Toledo, central Spain. It follows the fortunes of Torquemada, the hardworking clockmaker, as, during the course of one hot afternoon, his young wife Concepción negotiates her way through her collection of ridiculous lovers. Ravel’s music is bursting with hummable melodies, lively habanera dances and other Spanish folk song elements to get audiences buzzing.
This is opera for everyone - featuring an outstanding cast of five young singers as well as four brilliant musicians, performing a new English translation by Artistic Director Richard Studer and a new arrangement of Ravel’s exotic score created by Music Director Jonathan Lyness.
Tickets: £14, £12 concessions (Under 25s half price)
Venue: Richard Burton Theatre
