Byre Opera’s production will offer a contemporary take on Handel’s classic tragicomedy, sung in Nicholas Hytner’s English translation.
It will reunite the director-and-designer team of Tania Holland Williams and Gregor Donnelly who collaborated so successfully on The Turn of the Screw for Byre Opera two years ago, and will feature a period-instrument ensemble, The Fitzwilliam Band, led by Lucy Russell and conducted by Michael Downes.
For the first time, Byre Opera will be touring to London with two semi-staged performances of Xerxes in the Priory Church of the Order of St John.
