A five-star acclaimed production from NIOpera and Director Antony McDonald.

A darkly comic opera, written by one of the UK’s most celebrated composers. Inspired by the sensational life of the ‘Dirty Duchess’ of Argyll, this production dazzles and entertains in equal measure.


Nevill Holt Opera is delighted to welcome the acclaimed ensemble Britten Sinfonia as orchestra in residence for this production.

  • “Snappy, saucy and stylish – 5 stars”

    The Telegraph

  • “Breathtakingly good in every respect”
