David Hare’s play The Moderate Soprano will transfer to the West End following a sold-out run at Hampstead Theatre in 2015. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the play tells the story of John Christie, the founder of Glyndebourne Opera House, and Audrey Mildmay, a soprano singer. When the play first ran, it starred Roger Allam and Nancy Carroll, and the pair will reprise their roles in the West End, with further casting to be announced. The Moderate Soprano will run at the Duke of York’s from 5th April to 30th June 2018, with an official opening night on 12th April.
Note: This is a review of the original Hampstead production. The Moderate Soprano is transferring to the West End in 2018.
