We went to the Opening Performance on the 14th April, 2011 and loved every moment of the production. Such inspirational casting- Lucy Briggs-Owen and Oliver Rix. I was really impressed by Christopher Godwin as Don Camillo. The music was wonderful and what a beautiful ending with music and dance. Well done Greg Doran. Our thanks to you for re-imagining the “lost play”, a fantastic achievement. This was a really memorable evening and a superb way to celebrate the re-opening of the lovely Swan Theatre.

……..And so we went to see Cardenio again on the Saturday evening, having so enjoyed the wonderful and informative talk by Greg Doran in the morning to Friends. It was even better the second time and sitting in a different part of the theatre appreciated even more the performance of Pippa Nixon as Dorotea. Superb.

People go the theatre for different reasons, hopefully to enjoy the performance. Certainly we did with Cardenio. Fully recommend it. We will go again!

The new production of HENRY IV PART ONE is about to open at the Globe and I note that no less than eight  of the company have previously appeared with the RSC.

The title role is to be played by Oliver Cotton whilst Roger Allam will be seen as Falstaff. Other familiar faces from Stratford productions are Jason Baughan, Patrick Brennan, Christopher Godwin, Sean Kearns, William Gaunt and (recently seen in ARABIAN NIGHTS) Kevork Malikyan.


My wife and I are seeing the production in September, so watch this space!
