The Clowns is a radical adaptation of Cavalleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci. With a new orchestration by acclaimed Musical Director  Panaretos Kyriatzidis and a new English libretto from award winning dramaturg and writer, Becca Marriott.  It is currently in research and development.  A first iteration of the piece was premiered on February 24th 2020.

In 2021 we are hoping to further the development of the piece and are seeking to establish a partnership with a charity working with the victims of domestic violence to enhance the truth of the relationships at the heart of the show.

We aim to stage the completed piece in 2022.
