Benvenuto Cellini

Benvenuto Cellini

(E) 3 hrs 10 min (inc. 20 min interval) | Opera performance
Following 2011’s sell-out The Damnation of Faust, director Terry Gilliam and ENO Music Director Edward Gardner reunite to forge this remarkable new production of Berlioz’s rarely-performed Benvenuto Cellini. Gilliam’s inexhaustible imagination is unleashed on the outrageous autobiography of celebrated 16-century goldsmith and sculptor Benvenuto Cellini. It’s a tale of thwarted love, elopement, intrigue, disguise, and mistaken identity, which also features dazzling visual set pieces including a wild Mardi Gras carnival.
