The Moderate Soprano

In the 1930s John Christie and Audrey Mildmay were about to take a step that would revolutionise the British opera scene as the Glyndebourne Opera House was born.

Nearly a century later the acclaimed writer David Hare penned the play The Moderate Soprano, detailing the rise of the company with Roger Allam and Nancy Caroll playing Christie and his wife Audrey Mildmay respectively.

The latter production earned well-deserved praise when it ran at the Hampstead Theatre in North London and now it is the turn of West End audiences to relish in this inspiring and memorable story as The Moderate Soprano runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre.

There’s a lot more to the story of the Glyndebourne Opera House than meets the eye. Not only does it feature a memorable romance, but also inspiring hard work and an element of hope in the days just before the Second World War began. The Moderate Soprano of the title was Christie’s wife Audrey, with whom they created the company and brought it to international attention. Christie also met some refugees from Nazi Germany and it was their help that also contributed to its rise.

Roger Allam returns to the role of John Christie, bringing with him not only the skills he honed when the production ran at the Hampstead Theatre, but also from other theatrical productions in London and beyond. His credits include Limehouse at the Donmar Warehouse in 2017, Seminar at the Hampstead Theatre in 2014, La Cage Aux Folles at the Playhouse Theatre in 2009 and Les Misérables at the Barbican in 1985. He has also appeared in various television shows and films during a career that has lasted many decades.

But in returning to The Moderate Soprano he will also give West End audiences another chance to see his work as the story of Glyndebourne unfolds. The Opera House has been operating in Sussex since the 1930s and its annual festival attracts audiences from all over the world.

The Moderate Soprano, directed by Jeremy Herrin, returns to London with a run at the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre from Thursday 12th April 2018 (previews from Thursday 5th April 2018).
