Mixing humour, sexuality and seething emotions with dazzling music and soaring singing, Xerxes is an enthralling night of fun, joy and biting social satire. Nicholas Hytner’s iconic production of Handel’s comic masterpiece returns to the London Coliseum stage.
Spectacularly evoking Vauxhall’s pleasure gardens of the eighteenth century, this Olivier Award-winning production centres on the rivalry between Xerxes and his brother Arsamenes for the love of the same woman.
