Those looking for the latest work of David Hare need look no further than the Hampstead Theatre as his latest show The Moderate Soprano makes its way to the North London stage this October. Delving into the background of the Glyndebourne Opera through the work of John Christie, The Moderate Soprano is likely to the latest masterpiece of a writer whose work has been celebrated since he first emerged with shows like Slag in the 1970s.
With The Moderate Soprano we witness Christie as he embarks on the biggest project of all, the building of an opera house on his estate. It will be the culmination of passion that has fed him throughout his life.
It is a story that needs to be told, the story of a man whose background as a war hero had already earned him a great reputation and his status as a Wagner lover with a soprano wife in Audrey Mildmay only fuelled him on to make more. But as the Second World War wages on, his artistic mind sets on a particular way of fuelling the stage.
David Hare is name familiar to anyone picking up theatre tickets as his career has included a multitude of stand-outs. In addition to the mentioned Slag he has also penned the likes of South Downs, The Vertical Hour and The Judas Kiss, amongst many others.
Under the direction of Jeremy Herrin, The Moderate Soprano takes to the stage of the Hampstead Theatre from Friday 23rd October 2015.
