English Touring Opera: Handelfest

1 October @ 7:30 pm - 8 October @ 10:00 pm


This Autumn, English Touring Opera returns to Hackney Empire with ‘Handelfest‘, a celebration of the work of one of the greatest composers of opera in the UK, George Friderich Handel.

Handelfest‘ will see the revival of two of our critically acclaimed productions, Ottone, which tells the tale of an emperor and his bride kept apart by court intrigue and the workings of fate, and Agrippina, Handel’s masterpiece of political intrigue, and the most devilish of comedies. It will also see a brand-new production of Tamerlano, a true marriage of drama and music, written in a year of inspired creativity. 
Performances of ‘Handelfest‘ will take place on 1 October (Ottone), 7 October (Agrippina) and 8 October (Tamerlano).
Tickets: £10-37. Students can access £10 tickets with a valid student ID.
ETO will also be running a multibuy deal for ‘Handelfest‘: book for any 2 shows in Handelfest, get 20% off. Book for all 3 shows in Handelfest, get 25% off. Can’t be used in conjunction with any other offer.
