Following our highly acclaimed production last year of Britten's Curlew River, Enigma Chamber Opera bring you another of the church parables: The Prodigal Son.

In this entirely new staging of the piece, we uncover themes of family relationships, division and reconciliation, and the part we all should seek to play in our communities. Last year's 'Curlew River' taught us that, even in the toughest times, we will find comfort. 'The Prodigal Son' shows us how we should be that comfort for those around us.

With orchestra and an amazing cast, there are just two performances of this show: Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd October, both at 7pm. Don't miss it!
