  • Overview

    A fire-breathing dragon is terrorizing the Yorkshire countryside, and only the local squire, Moore of Moore Hall can save the day. If only he can be bothered to put down his beer.

    The Dragon of Wantley, the most popular operatic production of the entire 18th century in England, enjoyed a 45-year run. Lampe deftly lampoons the excesses of Handelian opera in this hilarious farce. 

    This all-new production is led by BEMF’s GRAMMY-winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed Stage Director Gilbert Blin and features an all-star roster of 18 singers, dancers, and instrumentalists, period-inspired staging and lavish costumes to bring this rollicking masterpiece to life!
