Noted for his mastery of the Bel canto style … literally ‘beautiful singing. Vincenzo Bellini shows off this skill perfectly in La Sonnambula (The Sleepwalker). With a feast of beautiful melodies, vocal fireworks and a hilarious plot this is sure to be an opera you will love.
The story revolves around a love triangle in which one of the lovers blots her copybook by being found in the wrong man’s bed. Only when it is discovered that she is a sleepwalker is her innocence eventually believed!
But – as you might expect from Bath Opera – this production is a little bit different. This updated and witty realisation of the story moves the action to a modern-day retirement home which gives the director lots of scope for comic antics, as misunderstandings, mistaken identities and confusion reign in the best tradition of farce.
