1 February 2024 - 15 February 2024
Step into a world of resistance and redemption with The Handmaid’s Tale, a powerful new opera based on Margaret Atwood’s iconic novel.
This gripping tale of courage and survival is set against Poul Ruders’ powerful score of medieval chants and gospel music, creating a hauntingly beautiful backdrop for this thought-provoking production. With a minimalist libretto by Paul Bentley, the dissonant brutality of the Republic of Gilead is vividly captured on stage.
Directed by Annilese Miskimmon, the ENO’s Artistic Director and conducted by Joana Carneiro the production has an exceptional cast including mezzo-sopranos Kate Lindsey as Offred and Susan Bickley as her mother, with soprano Rachel Nicholls as Aunt Lydia, Avery Amereau as Serena Joy, James Creswell as The Commander and ENO Harewood Artist John Findon as Luke.
The Handmaid’s Tale returns to the London Coliseum from 1st to 15th February 2024.
