Jane Austen’s Persuasion: A Musical Drama

Palace Theatre, Paignton, TQ3 3HF
Wed 7th August 2019 7:30PM

Back by popular demand! One performance only on Wednesday, 7 August at 7:30pm

Following sold out performances in Paignton and at the Jane Austen Festival in Bath in 2018, Chamber Opera Tours is thrilled to bring its original musical adaptation back to the Palace Theatre. This popular production has toured the UK and North America the past six years and features music from Jane Austen’s manuscripts and the era, fully staged with chamber orchestra, beautiful Regency costumes, projected scenery, and world-champion Irish dancers!

“No ‘Persuasion’ needed to see this treat for the eyes and ears…astounding!” (Isle of Wight County Press)

“Perfect synchronicity between the cast and the impressive chamber orchestra…retaining much original dialogue complemented superbly by Austen’s favourite music and luxurious costumes.” (Broadway Baby, Featured in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival)

“Flashes of humour, great dancing, a small but perfect orchestra, clever scene changes with very well done projections, and the cast of over 30 all playing their roles to perfection … one of the best evening’s entertainment I’ve had!” (Bury Free Press)
