This is a ready-made night out complete with a passionate opera and an exclusive cocktail – all for a bargain price.
My oh my, this is an offer that’s too good to refuse! You can have a night at the theatre and an experiential cocktail at Below Stairs all for just £20 – that’s less than half price! But what will you be watching? Katya Kabanova of course. It’s the latest production from Opera North, a deeply dramatic tale of love, passion and guilt that will keep you on the edge of your seat thanks to Janáček’s immense score.
This dark, powerful opera will blow you away
Katya Kabanova is a tale of one woman’s battle with her own fate. She’s stuck in an unhappy marriage, harangued by the mother-in-law from hell and secretly in love with the oh-so-charming Boris – it’s a recipe for disaster. Soon she’s cannonballing headfirst into a passionate affair that will end in her untimely demise, because despite her foibles, Katya is good at heart, and she can’t bear the guilt of what she’s done.
Pared down to its minimalist form, Opera North hones in on the action, and as the story unfolds on stage, you’ll be carried away with the music. Expect a tense, dramatic opera that’s full of surprises – no seriously, there’s even spanking! And because it’s all sung in English, you’ll understand every word.
Find out what the show would taste like with an exclusive cocktail
Below Stairs is famed for its experiential cocktails, which transport you to another time and place, but this one’s an exclusive. Storm in a Coupe takes inspiration from the opera. The Tanqueray 10, riesling and jasmine create a soft floral herbaceousness that conjures up images of a garden tryst, while the honey adds the warmth of their passion. But it’s all marked by the growing storm with the cool addition of Fernet Branca Menta. Served sparkling with a few drops of blood-red manzanilla sherry that hints of the tragic end, it’s a must-try, but if you’d prefer a glass of house wine or beer, you can have that instead.
