Patrick Hawes

A King's Ransom


The professional world premiere of a children’s opera by chart-topping classical composer, Patrick Hawes.

A King’s Ransom reimagines the story of Robin Hood. But, there’s just one problem… where’s Robin? Faced with the threats of the soldiers, and their King imprisoned, what will the villagers do when Robin can’t be found?

Into Opera and Britten Sinfonia unite with 160 children from four schools in Norfolk to tell this remarkable story.

Thursday 1st February and Friday 2nd February at 7pm
Tickets: £12 (Adult) £6 (Under 16)
Concessions for those who are unemployed or on low incomes £6 (Adult) £2 (Under 16)

VIP tickets (including a drinks reception with the composer) are available to purchase on request from [email protected] (numbers limited).
