Iernin – Surrey Opera

Iernin e-flier front

Surrey Opera presents the enchanting tale of Iernin, with an imaginative new production celebrating the centenary of Cornish composer George Lloyd.

Legend has it that a group of women were turned to stone as a punishment for dancing on a Sunday. One of the stones in the circle comes back to life as Iernin, whose wild, natural beauty bewitches a local nobleman. Since he is already betrothed, this blossoming love affair scandalises the local community and threatens the future of Cornwall, as it struggles to retain its independence from the Saxons.

 

Iernin is presented by Surrey Opera at Trinity School, Shirley Park, Croydon on 24, 25 and 26 October

Box office: 020 8660 5760

And at St John’s Hall, Penzance, on 1 and 2 November. Box office: 01736 810181

Tickets priced £18 – £20
