Amadis De Gaule

University College London Union Music Society Presents Amadis de Gaule, a visionary opera by Johann Christian Bach, performed in English at the Bloomsbury Theatre. Written and first performed on the eve of the French Revolution in Paris, the opera is a chivalric tale of the violent conflict between love and hate-fuelled revenge. Featuring some of today’s most exciting young opera singers with a chorus and orchestra of UCL students, and conducted by Charles Peebles, Jack Furness’ production will bring the opera to life in the ruins of a war-torn society where no civil structures remain. An opera of unflinching intensity, human honesty and visionary utopianism, the production will be a must-see theatrical event.
