A Season of New Opera

Grimeborn is an annual festival at the Arcola Theatre that celebrates the arrival of new and exciting operas. By 'new', this could mean anything from an adaptation of a traditional production, productions that have been under appreciated, and thus rarely seen, or a completely new and original idea.

The name 'Grimeborn' mocks the 'dinner jacket' formality of Glyndebourne productions. Over the last seven years, the fringe-style festival has grown in confidence, and has attracted audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Grimeborn runs between the 14th August - 7th September with tickets costing £15 or £12 concessions.
