Duke Bluebeard’s Castle / I pagliacci (2013)

Béla Bartók / Ruggero Leoncavallo

Duke Bluebeard brings his new wife home to his castle. She sees seven doors and begins to open them. What does she find? Duke Bluebeard's Castle is a symbolist journey to the depths of the mind, underpinned by the effective music of Béla Bartók.

Fiction and reality mix in a performance by a travelling troupe of actors as the jealous theatre director suspects his wife of being unfaithful. I pagliacci is one of the world's most popular operas, which is scarcely surprising considering it explores deeply fundamental questions: What is life? What is theatre?
