In collaboration with Guildhall School of Music & Drama, this mini-opera, directed by Dr Andrew Lawrence-King, re-creates Monteverdi’s thrilling vision of an epic sword fight in music; tying in perfectly with current exhibition The Noble Art of the Sword: Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe. Performances take place seated cabaret style in the glazed courtyard restaurant, include additional music, a talk by curator Tobias Capwell and the opportunity for an evening view of the exhibition.

Booking essential – tickets £15.00 (£8.50 concessions). To book, please call 020 7563 9567.

The 6.30pm performance is now sold out. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please call and leave your details.
