DateSaturday 21st September 2019
Description"The Fire Of Olympus; or, On Sticking It To The Man" tells the story of Prometheus and Pandora in a brand-new opera by Tim Benjamin, performed by the innovative mavericks Radius Opera. "Zeus is the all-powerful President of Olympus, undermined by activists led by the prankster Prometheus. An accidental theft leads to love, hate, revolution, prison, and anarchy. But a world in ruins demands in Zeus a strong leader - was this his plan all along, or has he finally met his nemesis?" In The Fire, incredible virtuoso singers re-imagine the popular 18th century operas of Handel: tuneful, direct, and sung in English. The brilliant cast and orchestra are joined by the digitally combined voices of over 1000 volunteers from across the North, in a spectacular and exciting theatrical event. This radical, accessible opera uses the power of Greek myth to resonate with the modern world, and is filled with drama, passion, politics, tragedy, and comedy. Unmissable. Radius Opera: New opera. Makes you think. Running time: 100 minutes (with interval). Sung in English with surtitles where available. Start time: 7.30pm Music by Tim Benjamin. Words by Anthony Peter and Tim Benjamin. Director: Tim Benjamin Music Director: Ellie Slorach Design: Lara Booth
