Berwick Festival Opera 2014
The Maltings Theatre is delighted to launch Berwick Festival Opera which spans two weekends in July and August to present some of the world’s most beautiful music and song in the very heart of the town. The festival has a very clear artistic mission: to take well-known works and produce vibrant new productions at a scale that captures the magic of superb singing and instrumental accompaniment, but at a size that reflects the smaller venues that one finds in towns like Berwick-upon-Tweed - would otherwise never be able to host opera.

Note: This performance will take place at the Berwick Guildhall, NOT at The Maltings Theatre.
