Janáček’s penultimate opera, The Makropulos Case is at once a mystery thriller and a meditation on desire and eternal life. It keeps its audience guessing until its thrilling conclusion’s transcendent revelations on life and love, and features some of the composer’s most radiant, life-affirming music. Richard Farnes conducts the premiere of Opera North's new production by acclaimed director Tom Cairns, with an exceptional cast of soloists. Supported by Dunard Fund.
