The Dragon of Wantley, the most popular operatic production of the entire 18th century in England, enjoyed a 45-year run. Lampe deftly lampoons the excesses of Handelian opera in this hilarious farce of 1736. This all-new production is led by BEMF’s GRAMMY-winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed Stage Director Gilbert Blin. An all-star cast, featuring GRAMMY-nominee Teresa Wakim alongside Hannah De Priest and Douglas Williams, combines with period-inspired staging and lavish costumes, to bring this rollicking masterpiece to life in a must-see operatic event!
