Tim Benjamin’s opera Madame X is playing it’s final performance of this year at the Royal Northern College of Music tomorrow evening.
This entertaining and theatrical opera has enjoyed performances in Todmorden, Halifax and London with audiences being able to publish their feedback here with many reviews giving 4 or 5 stars!
Madame X tells the story of Masetto and Zerlina – a young immigrant couple – who are impoverished, cold, and starving. Masetto, a brilliant portrait artist, is being ripped off by his unscrupulous agent, and circling art collectors will not take “no” for an answer. Shivering in a shabby loft, struggling to make ends meet, and exploited by the wealthy and powerful collectors Lady Brannoch and Mr Wilmore, Masetto lives for his art, protected only by his muse and love, Zerlina. Their plight becomes increasingly perilous, desperate, and deadly, until at last: revenge.
Tickets for the final performance on 25th September can be bought here.
