Outstanding ‘Xerxes’ from English Touring Opera

Outstanding ‘Xerxes’ from English Touring Opera


On 8th October 2011, English Touring Opera premiered its new production of Handel’s ‘Xerxes’ at the RCM’s Britten Theatre. It is a remarkable achievement and a tribute to the creativity and teamwork of all those involved at ETO. In its way it makes a statement as powerful as the celebrated 1985 staging by Nicholas Hytner for ENO, and that is no mean feat indeed.
