Opera North Sadlers 120
It ought to be the ultimate male fantasy – to bring a statue of Venus, the goddess of love, to life by slipping a ring on her finger. But for humble New York hairdresser Rodney Hatch it can only spell trouble, especially when it is his fiancée’s ring!

A big hit when it opened on Broadway in 1943, this highly acclaimed Kurt Weill musical comedy, directed by Tim Albery, delivers the full Broadway experience. With some deliciously risqué lyrics, and a sub-plot that could have been lifted from a comic caper movie, it’s great fun. The score features I’m a Stranger Here Myself, Westwind and the haunting Speak Low among many gems.

Dazzling dance sequences choreographed by William Tuckett, witty sets by top stage designer Antony McDonald and fabulous 1940s costumes by Emma Ryott.
