London Premiere

Don't miss your chance to see the six-time Tony-winning The Light in the Piazza as it makes its London premiere in a strictly limited 20-performance run. Starring Broadway darling, Renee Fleming and rising-star Dove Cameron, be transported to the sun-washed warmth of Italy in this romantic drama.

Directed by Olivier award winner Daniel Evans, The Light in the Piazza will feature the Opera North's 40-piece orchestra as they bring you the most romantic score this side of West Side Story. Debuting on Broadway in 2005 the musical garnered much critical acclaim for its sweeping plot, and its decision to disregard the use of pop-esque music of the day in favour for a more classical and intricate score.

What is The Light in the Piazza about?

Set in Florence in the summer of 1953, American Margaret Johnson and her daughter Clara take in the sights and sounds of their surroundings. When a gust of wind carries Clara's hat across the square and into the hands of Fabrizio Naccarelli a romance between the pair ensues. But as Clara's and Fabrizio's love deepens, secrets begin to surface as it becomes clear that there is more to Clara than meets the eye.
