Jealousy, revenge, hopeless romance and a breathtaking wall of fire bring epic operas Aida and Nabucco to life in award-winning opera producer Ellen Kent’s new tour.

Pyrotechnic displays and lighting effects help bring Ellen’s love of large-scale productions to the local stage, complete with stunning scenery depicting the splendour and mystery of ancient Egypt and the beautiful hanging gardens of Babylon.

Ellen said, “I feel I can indulge myself in these operas. I try my best to give the audience the feeling of something epic.”

The celebrated Chisinau National Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra, with international guest soloists, starts the autumn tour at the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne today (Friday) with (Nabucco) and tomorrow (Saturday) with Aida.
