Lucrezia Borgia, and Il Viaggio a Reims, English Touring Opera, ETO, March 2023Posted on 6 March 2023
English Touring Opera is a gem of a company. It creates sensible productions and tours them widely from Exeter to Durham.

Unable to afford big name directors who sometimes bend the original creation to their will, ETO gives us what the composer intended, allowing the music to speak for itself and the singers to portray the roles expected.
