Blond Eckbert: Double Bill

by Judith Weir, 7:30pm Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Judith Weir’s Blond Eckbert is a haunting tale of isolation and guilt, where a couple’s quiet rural life is upended by the visit of an old friend who seems to know too much.

ETO’s critically acclaimed production is presented in a double bill with Do not take my story for a fairytale, a new staging of song cycles and cantatas exploring love, isolation and the terrible wonder of the natural world.

Director Robin Norton-Hale
