2019 Season

The 2019 season is now on sale

Opening the season, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Our Town (16 May – 8 June) is directed by Ellen McDougall, Artistic Director of the Gate Theatre.

Continuing our collaboration with English National Opera we present Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera Hansel and Gretel (14 June – 22 June). Sung in English, members of the ENO Orchestra will be conducted by Ben Glassberg, with direction by Open Air Theatre’s Artistic Director, Timothy Sheader.

Dominic Hill, Artistic Director of the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow, then directs a new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (28 June – 27 July), the first time we’re presented the Dream in seven years.

To conclude the season, Jamie Lloyd directs Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita (2 August – 21 September) as our other Rice/Webber hit Jesus Christ Superstar transfers to the Barbican (4 July – 24 August). Evita first premiered in the West End in 1978, and features a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh! What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Academy Award-winning You Must Love Me, originally performed by Madonna in the motion picture.
