In celebration of Offenbach's bicentenary we bring the UK stage premiere of Fantasio, combining bubbling melodies with gentle poignancy. A moonstruck dreamer falls in love with a princess and sets off a series of mistaken identities and secret encounters. With music full of dazzling charm and romantic arias, we welcome Hanna Hipp (Capriccio, 2018) in the title role, Jennifer France (Le nozze di Figaro, 2017) as Princess Elsbeth and director Martin Duncan (Il turco in Italia, 2017) with conductor Justin Doyle making his Garsington debut.
