  • Visitor Information

Mark-Anthony Turnage's precocious first opera, Greek, returns to Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House with all of its original cast from 2011, including Marcus Farnsworth who received critical acclaim as Eddy, the anti-hero. Greek is a raunchy re-write of the Oedipus myth set in London's East End. Michael McCarthy's production received the UK Theatre Award in 2011 for Outstanding Achievement in Opera. Greek is based on a play by Steven Berkoff. The wide frame of stylistic reference, ranging from rock and jazz to high-art, and vivid drama have turned Greek into a contemporary classic.
