Berlioz Béatrice et Bénédict (130’)

Preview + 
Arrive early for a free pre-concert talk with Ludovic Morlot and The University of Manchester’s Dr Fred Schurink. 6.30pm in the auditorium.


A joyous operatic translation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Berlioz’s captivating comic opera is the story of an unlikely romance – between Bénédict, a swaggering soldier who swears he’ll never marry, and Béatrice, the romantically reluctant daughter of a local politician. Will love trump hate? Find out tonight…
