Gerard Jones to direct Oreste by Haendel at Wiltons Music Hall* (part of the ROH’s Young Artist Programme)

All 9 sold out performances of Oreste by Haendel. A rare piece. A young audacious director. A ROH production. A unique theatre in East London. A daring staging.
Jones will take on this piece and bring it into a contemporary set whose visuals draw on 1980’s and 90’s grunge and graffiti.

Oreste happens in a run-down urban environment scarred by war. A despotic leader has set up his regime and is carrying out
a xenophobic genocide.

Performances: 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18 & 19 November 2016

*Wiltons Music Hall is the oldes surviving hall in the world
