The Duchess of Malfi


Fantastic in the most literal sense: if there were ever a candidate for a six star review, this would surely be it.

With an original score by Torsten Rasch, The Duchess Of Malfi rendered the dark heart of Webster’s classic tragedy of intrigue, murder and revenge into an epic immersive opera.

Told by an ensemble of 21 singers and dancers, the production featured a 69-piece symphony orchestra roaming across the 136,000 square feet of a decommissioned pharmaceutical headquarters in London’s docklands. Tickets for the entire run of performances sold out on the day of release.
