BARTÓK. Bluebeard's Castle


Judith stands on the threshold of Bluebeard’s Castle. Seven doors are locked before her. Needing to know what secrets lie beyond the doors and within the man she loves, she steps into the darkness. 

Green Opera brings together artists with a passion for environmental practice in a unique combination of art-installation and theatre. This production of Bartók’s only opera explores the obsessive desire of an artist/muse relationship and how women interact with male fantasies projected upon them. Performed in Hungarian with English surtitles.

This production is generously supported by Arts Council England.
