Around the World in theatres, anyone?

Where is this? Yes, it’s the Royal Opera House, but it’s not Covent Garden. Got it yet? Maybe not – because this Royal Opera House is in Mumbai!

Enjoy an online afternoon treat coming up on Thursday 25th November at 4pm UK time, as Terry Davis, Archivist of the Frank Matcham Society, gives a free online Zoom talk about his globe-trotting theatre experiences, assisted by technical whiz Richard Norman.

Terry’s theatre travels have, over many years, taken him right around the Globe. His talk with illustrations brings about a dozen examples of differing venues with many surprises, some even hilarious. His photo collection, aided by some movies, certainly shows that going to the theatre in distant countries offers a very different cultural experience to what we are accustomed to in the UK. Returning home, his closing surprise is to show us an opera house discovery situated in the Midlands that is loosely modelled on Glyndebourne.
