Win a pair of tickets to see Blood Brothers on 31st March at Watford Colosseum
Watford Colosseum is delighted to host the legendary musical Blood Brothers. Written by Willy Russell, Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences. The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning Blood Brothers. Before it closed in November 2012, Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the Standing Ovation Musical, as inevitably it; “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” Jack Tinker, Daily Mail.

Win a pair of tickets to see Nabucco
At The Grove Theatre in Dunstable on April 14
Twenty-One years after it launched her opera career, award-winning producer Ellen Kent brings Nabucco back to the stage with the well-known and emotionally-haunting Va Pensiero sung in its original setting and sure to bring a tear to the eye.
The ensemble number, a favourite of choral societies and choirs and often better known as The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, is set on the banks of the River Euphrates as the captured are taken to be slaughtered.
Since then Ellen has produced and directed about 100 operas and entertained more than four million people with her tours of the UK and Ireland.
Nabucco was Ellen's first foray into opera in 1993 in an open-air production to an audience of 7,000 at Rochester Castle with a cast flown over from Romania in Ceausescu’s former plane borrowed from the country’s president.
The opera follows the plight of the Hebrews as they are conquered and sentenced to death by the Babylonian King Nabucco (Nebuchadnezzar). A complicated romantic plot provides the detail with a love triangle combined with power play, religion and death.
Amazing stage and lighting effects recreate the burning of Solomon’s temple as jealousy and destruction drive the king to madness.
About 30 local dancers, children and adults, join the 80-strong cast as slaves and soldiers on stage.
Verdi composed Nabucco just after his wife and children had died, but saw it as the opera with which his artistic career really began. A choir of 800 sang Va Pensiero at his burial.
To win the tickets please answer this simple question:
How many years has Ellen Kent been producing opera?
