Champagne is flowing in Sloane Square while cash and coke changes hands in the back alleys of Soho. City trader Jonny slinks effortlessly through the city’s dark underbelly, on the prowl for new and dangerous experiences. Desired, depraved and dragging his reluctant intern behind him, he leaves a trail of broken hearts and barristers’ blood in his wake.
Sung in a new English translation and set in the pre-credit crunch days of the early noughties, this is a heady mix of sex, violence and beautiful music. A fantastic new collaboration between Soho Theatre and the UK’s hottest opera company, OperaUpClose, Winner of the 2011 Olivier Award for Best Opera Production for their brilliantly ‘re-magined’ La Boheme.
