Amadeus

Open Run

As part of Rufus Norris' inaugural season at the National, he has announced a programme of diversely cast plays, including this brand-new revival of Amadeus with colour-blind casting. Last seen on the NT stage in 1979 when it premiered, Amadeus explores the stormy relationship between aging court composer Antonio Salieri and genius young upstart Mozart. Salieri will be played by British-Tanzanian veteran actor Lucian Msamati.

Peter Pan

Open Run

As part of Rufus Norris' new programme as the incoming artistic director of the National Theatre, he has scheduled a daring take in casting some classic plays, as part of a drive to encourage diversity in theatre. In this new production first seen at the Bristol Old Vic, the duel role of Captain Hook (and Mrs Darling) will be played by Anna Francolini in this holiday season transfer.

Twelfth Night

March 27-May 13, 2017

As part of Rufus Norris' inaugural season at the National Theatre, he has announced a series of shows that challenge traditional casting, making roles gender fluid or colour-blind to encourage diversity in theatre. In this new revival of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Tamsin Grieg takes on the role of Malvolia, the antagonist of this gender-bending comedy.

Saint George and The Dragon

Opens October 3, 2017

Distinguished playwright Rory Mullarkey and director Lyndsay Turner join forces for this world premiere! A new stage adaptation of the story of England's patron saint, we go further into the knight's tale as we've never gone before, in this epic folk tale. Find a new spin on how the knight transmuted into myth, and into sainthood, helped on the way by songs and dance, provided by Gran Olding and Lynne Page respectfully. Opening this October at the Olivier Theatre, dates are yet to be confirmed. Watch this space for new details!

Antony and Cleopatra

Opens February 8, 2018

Film and stage royalty Ralph Fiennes returns to the play that made his name playing Claudio in 1988, this time in the lead role of Antony! Shakespeare's historical play depicting Ancient Egypt's first celebrity couple returns to the National Theatre 31 years later, as part of Rufus Norris' inaugural season of shows. Directed by Simon Godwin.
