Our 2017 Family Opera production was Springtime for Haman. In this sequel to Cambridge composer David Bass's romantic opera The Coronation of Esther, Queen Esther risks her life to save her cousin Mordechai and the Jewish people from Haman, the vengeful Grand Vizier of Persia. Springtime for Haman is a sensitive and entertaining portrayal of the biblical story in two 50-minute acts and features lyrical music in a variety of popular and classical styles. Presented by an inter-generational cast in English with side titles. See our 2010 performances of Springtime for Haman HERE.
