Autumn 2022 will open with a new production of The Makropulos Affair; part of WNO’s Janáček Series, directed by Olivia Fuchs and conducted by WNO’s Music Director Tomáš Hanus.

The story centres on the idea of eternal life and is based on a play by the Czech writer Karel Čapek. The opera begins seemingly as a tale of a never-ending legal dispute between two families, but evolves into a mystery surrounding its enigmatic central character, Emilia Marty who will be performed by Emma Bell.

As well as touring to UK cities, the production will also be performed internationally as part of the Brno Festival celebrating Janáček and his work in November.

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
