About the Show Less...

Music Theatre Wales presents Salvatore Sciarrino’s bewitching opera, based on the true story of Renaissance madrigal master and murderer Carlo Gesualdo. Read More >

Acclaimed Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino’s opera The Killing Flower (Luci mie traditrici) is inspired by the life of Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo. Renowned as a master of the madrigal, Gesualdo achieved notoriety of a different kind for the double killing of his wife and lover.

Sciarrino combines themes of passion, betrayal and murder in an opera like no other. The audience is cast in the role of eavesdropper, caught up in the beauty and mystery of hushed conversations, fraught silences and elusive whispers. Music Theatre Wales brings The Killing Flower to the UK for the first time in an immersive new production by Michael McCarthy.

Booking opens on the 9th of July
