Following Carmen, La Traviata and the Olivier Award nominated La bohème, the King's Head Theatre present a quirky, romantic and enchanting new take on Donizetti’s dazzling comic opera. 1982. In the Welsh seaside town of Barry Island, lovelorn poet Nemorino’s affections for the charismatic Italian immigrant, Adina, are met with indifference. Luckily for him, Dulcamara, a travelling peddler has the perfect solution... a love potion. As the Falklands war gains momentum and Thatcherism ravages the UK, can these two young romantics find happiness in a time of uncertainty and division?
Sung in a new English version by Chris Harris and David Eaton
