At Pomegranate Theatre

Starts 5.30pm.

The Pomegranate Theatre is proud to present this satellite broadcast as part of its cinema programme.

When the mysterious Nick Shadow appears at his door, Tom Rakewell immediately abandons country life and his sweetheart Anne for the temptations of the city. But London’s glittering promise soon corrodes;  love, money and even sanity slip further and further from Tom’s grasp. Can true love save him, or will the Devil have the last laugh?

Hogarth’s paintings charting one man’s path from pleasure to ruin are the starting point for one of the most dazzlingly original works of the 20th century, like a Mozart opera that has wandered into a musical hall of mirrors – at once elegant and anarchic. Comedy and tragedy are never far apart in this light-footed work that can break your heart with the broadest of smiles.

One of the great Glyndebourne classics, John Cox’s production returns for the first time in a decade, bringing David Hockney’s much-loved designs to a new generation. Jakub Hrůša conducts.
