Presenting innovative productions of neglected works since 1978
NSO is a community based company. Its heart is its chorus and the expert unpaid team who do the administration and behind-the-scenes work. Professionals and amateurs work together to present imaginative, high quality productions, usually of unjustly neglected or lesser-known works. Each year’s major production tours venues in the South East, including London, and the NSO chorus presents an “in-house” production or two.
A noir twist on the classic tragedy, set to sumptuous late romantic music.
Delius’ dreamlike, achingly beautiful score contains the much-loved ‘Walk to the Paradise Garden’ - just one of many highlights. An emotionally gripping production, with luscious music and the dramatic story of two young lovers forced to desperate ends.
A rare chance to experience this powerful work live and up close in NSO’s imaginative, hard-hitting, stripped-down production sung in the original English.
