The two great passions in John Christie’s life were opera and a beautiful young soprano, Audrey Mildmay, with whom he was completely smitten. Together with his formidable drive, they fuelled what many first saw as a monumental folly in the South Downs. Glyndebourne was triumphantly born amidst stiff manhattans, rolling lawns and the sound of sheep from across the HaHa. It was to become revered the world over. David Hare’s new play, first seen at Hampstead Theatre, is the story of an intense love affair and the unrelenting search for artistic excellence in the face of searing scrutiny, sacrifice and the impending Second World War.
Jeremy Herrin’s acclaimed production of David Hare’s The Moderate Soprano will have its West End premiere in April 2018, following its sold out run here at Hampstead Theatre in 2015. Herrin has returned to direct the play, which includes brand new set and costume designs by the multi award-winning theatre and opera designer, Bob Crowley. Olivier Award winners Roger Allam and Nancy Carroll will reprise the roles of Glyndebourne founder John Christie and soprano Audrey Mildmay. Further casting is still to be announced.
