The Siege Of Calais (L'Assedio Di Calais): English Touring Opera

What does it mean to be a citizen? What is it that a citizen owes to his city, or country? This is the question posed by Donizetti's rarely performed epic The Siege of Calais (L’assedio di Calais) – a 'serious' opera constructed of bel canto arias and ensembles of extraordinary quality.

Donizetti's epic tells the story of the Burghers of Calais, who offered up their lives to save their citizens from the English army.

ETO's new production features designs by Faroese artist Samal Blak, inspired by the siege of Stalingrad.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
