Blanche McIntyre brings this classic into the modern day, providing a chilling and contemporary outlook onto 2017. Titus Andronicus returns from a 10-year war where he lost 21 sons. Feeling betrayed by his nation and his family in tatters Titus embarks on a violent cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Rape, cannibalism, mutilation and murder ensue making it one of Shakespeare's bloodiest plays.

Coraline Poster

Coraline

Barbican Theatre

March 29 - April 7, 2018

Avant-garde opera creator Mark-Anthony Turnage returns next March with a world premiere new work, based on the beloved and creepy story by award-winning novellist Neil Gaiman. Having previously brought us eyebrow-raising opera titles including Greek, The Silver Tassie and Anna Nicole, Coraline marks his first collaboration with The Royal Opera. So grab your yellow rain macs and star-patterned tops, when it heads to the Barbican next spring!

Barry Humphries' Weimar Cabaret

Barbican Theatre

July 11 - 29, 2018

Barry Humphries swaps Dame Edna's purple rinse and cat-eye glasses for a spiffy dinner suit for this fantastic trip to 1920s Berlin for an authentic cabaret experience detailing some of the divine song, dance, and gags captured at the height of the hedonistic era. Chanteuse Meow Meow and the Aurora Orchestra are on hand to provide the musical accompaniment for this internationally renowned floor show.

The largest performing arts centre of its kind in Europe, the Barbican is a gift to the UK from the City of London Corporation and was opened by the Queen in 1982. Known for its striking, brutalist architecture, the Centre is once again the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, which returned after a 12-year absence in 2013. It is also home to both the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the concert hall.
