Why Watch Duke Bluebeard’s Castle

This operatic masterwork by Bartók enthrals the senses and defies categorization. The tale of a tortured soul is presented within the walls of Bluebeard's Castle. This thrilling spectacle invites you to visit Bluebeard's Castle with a symbolic representation of the ongoing conflict between genders. This production is a two-hander with award-winning Welsh soprano Natalya Romaniw singing Judith and Canadian baritone John Relyea, one of today's best basses, as Bluebeard. It is delivered as a semi-staged concert performance by two internationally renowned performers in an hour of riveting psychodrama. Martyn Brabbins, director of music for the English National Opera, leads the performance of Duke Bluebeard's Castle at the London Coliseum and the penultimate show of ENO’s 2023/24 season.

The Story

As Judith explores room after room in Duke Bluebeard's castle, we journey into the depths of his troubled imagination. From a torture chamber to an armoury, a treasury, and a garden, her descent leads us to a mysterious seventh chamber, where her fate awaits.

Bartók's opera is a riveting and suspenseful thriller that defies easy classification. It delves into the psyche of an obsessive, violent man while serving as an allegory of the battle between the sexes. Bluebeard's Castle is a compelling tale that provokes both contemplation and excitement. Book your Duke Bluebeard's Castle tickets to witness this riveting opera!
