About the event

Chamber Opera Tours presents Jane Austen’s Persuasion: A Musical Drama

This popular musical adaptation has toured the UK and North America over the past six years including the Jane Austen Festivals in Bath and Canada and the Edinburgh, Camden, and Buxton Fringe Festivals.  It features songs from Jane Austen’s manuscripts and music of the era, chamber orchestra with Celtic and period instruments, authentic Regency costumes, beautiful projected scenery, and world-champion Irish dancers!

“No ‘persuasion’ needed to see this treat for the eyes and ears… astounding!” – Isle of Wight Press

★★★★ “Perfect synchronicity between the cast and the impressive chamber orchestra…retaining much original dialogue complemented superbly by Austen’s favourite music and luxurious costumes.” – Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Fringe Festival

“Flashes of humour, great dancing, a small but perfect orchestra, clever scene changes with very well done projections, and the cast of over 30 all playing their roles to perfection … one of the best evening’s entertainment I’ve had!” – Bury Free Press
