SUMMER 2017:
A FLORENTINE TRAGEDY 
Opera by Alexander Zemlinsky based on a play by Oscar Wilde
August 2017, Opera in the City Festival, Bridewell Theatre, London
The opera explores the erotic triangle of a woman, her husband and her lover. In this psychological thriller, their explosive encounter soon becomes a cat-and-mouse game. When the tension erupts into violence, there can only be one winner. Oscar Wilde’s poetic text is brought to life by Zemlinsky’s sublime music, which captures the atmosphere perfectly and paints a picture of love, passion, murder and betrayal.

Part of Time Zone Theatre's 'Fin de Siécle' - project - a series of works composed around 1900. 

Stage director: Pamela Schermann, Set and costume designer: Yole Lambrecht, Lighting designer: Petr Vocka, Musical director: Andrew Charity.

ZANETTO 
Opera by Pietro Mascagni
August 2017, Opera in the City Festival, Bridewell Theatre, London
Pietro Mascagni's one-act opera Zanetto tells of the encounter between wandering poet Zanetto and rich, beautiful Silvia, who lives on her own and has forsworn love entirely. Convinced that her love is fatal and can only bring misfortune, when young Zanetto awakens long-forgotten feelings, she struggles to take her chance at finding happiness.

Mascagni's opera will be performed in a contemporary setting and with a new English translation. Looking at Silvia and Zanetto as two women who live in London, director Pamela Schermann explores their unlikely friendship. Although the lives of Zanetto and Silvia could not be more different, they develop a deep sympathy for each other. But what they have in common is what will tear them apart – their inability to drop their guard and give in to love.

Stage director: Pamela Schermann, Set and costume designer: Yole Lambrecht, Lighting designer: Petr Vocka, Musical director: Andrew Charity. 

Cast: Becca Marriott, Sophie Goldrick, Violin: Nina Kopparhed

OPERA IN THE CITY FESTIVAL
1 - 12 August 2017 at Bridewell Theatre, City of London 
This summer, the Bridewell Theatre in the heart of the City of London will become the home of new and innovative operas, musical dramas and multi-art productions.  The two-weeks OPERA IN THE CITY FESTIVAL is curated by Time Zone Theatre Ltd and their artistic director Pamela Schermann. It presents new stagings of rarely performed masterpieces, such as Alexander Zemlinsky’s A Florentine Tragedy, as well as new, experimental works which combine classical music with poetry, dance, installation and performance art.

The festival wants to create a new hub for exciting productions which push the boundaries of classical music and make opera accessible for everyone. Not only does it provide a platform for emerging artists with big and daring ideas, it also proves that opera is not elitist. By showing theatrical productions performed in English and to affordable ticket prices, the festival aims to reach out to those new to opera.
    
Presented by Time Zone Theatre Ltd in association with the Bridewell Theatre.

The project “Fin de Siècle“ is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

The project is also generously supported by Golsoncott Foundation and the Austrian Cultural Forum London. ​
