Silas Marner

Wrongfully condemned and outcast from society, a poor weaver, eaten up with bitterness and anger, becomes a doomed miser and recluse, until he is forced to take in a young orphan girl.

Their mutual friendship leads to joy, love and his redemption.

The heart moving action, set in the early years of the 19th century, is performed by an ensemble cast of seven actors accompanied by music and songs of the period.

WHY? This great Victorian epic novel is thrillingly and theatrically brought to the stage by the acclaimed Conn Artists Theatre Company in the bicentenary year of George Eliot’s birth

Rigoletto on the Lake

One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame.

It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement Cortigiani, vil razza dannata, Gilda's dreamy Caro nome and the Duke's instantly recognisable La donna è mobile.

Directed and designed by Philip Stölzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.

WHY? Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage

Enter the Dragons

Expect fantastical characters, ridiculous puppetry, extreme wigs, physical comedy and delightfully dark humour. Sixty minutes of laugh-out-loud joy, dissent and touching humility for anyone who is considering ageing.

Enter the Dragons is an hilarious, surreal odyssey through the challenges of growing older, which explodes myths about beauty, sex and femininity.

An archetypal Hero is reframed as a mature woman in the modern world. Gripped with
fear at her advancing years, she sets off on an epic quest to defeat Chronos, the god of time, and halt the inevitable - ageing. Will she succeed?
