Tickets
Featuring a stunning cast of musical theatre and operatic talent, this is a rare opportunity to see this musical backed by full orchestra and chorus.
On the opening night of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew in 1940s Baltimore, the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham and his leading lady (and ex-wife) Lilli Vanessi are set to collide. Throw in Fred’s current paramour Lois Lane and her gambler boyfriend Bill – plus a couple of gun-toting gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show - and the stage is set for a funny and farcical battle of the sexes!
Cast includes: Quirijn de Lang as Fred Graham/ Petruchio, Stephanie Corley as Lilli Vanessi/ Katharine, Zoë Rainey as Lois Lane/ Bianca, and Alan Burkitt as Bill Calhoun/ Lucentio.
Opera North's award-winning production, directed by Jo Davies, features a sparkling cast of both international opera singers and West End stars, as well as the full Chorus and Orchestra of Opera North.
We look forward to welcoming you for an all-singing, all-dancing evening featuring some of the greatest songs of American musical theatre.
