Richard Strauss’ sumptuous opera offers comedy and poignant drama in equal measure, with unforgettable arias, trios and waltzes. Rebecca Evans returns in the iconic role of the Marschallin, having performed this for WNO in 2017. Also returning is WNO Music Director, Tomáš Hanus, conducting an orchestra of 90 players.

Sung in German with surtitles in English

In 1866, Liverpool Empire began its life as The Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House and was run by gas light and steam power. The name changed to what it is today in 1895, so has had its name for over 100 years. It went through many refurbishments, before being bought by ATG and the theatre now stands about a quarter size bigger than it originally stood.
