By nature Golden Lane residents like to look out for their neighbours and many informal groups are self organising. A group of residents headed by resident Councillor Sue Pearson have formed the GLE Covid 19 Hub to support these groups - email or leave a message on 07714 777692

More info on the Covid-19 page which we'll try to keep regularly updated with resident specific info and useful links.

FAUST, ALBERTA by Simone Spagnolo - a new opera which looks at the story of Doctor Faustus from a contemporary angle.

3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th September at 7.30pm (running time: 70 minutes without an interval)

A Nameless Man finds himself in a remote cabin surrounded by frozen snowfields. He doesn't know who he is nor where he is from, only that something is after him - an unstoppable machine that hunts those who fell from grace. In nine scenes, he tries to collect his memory. Triggered by snippets from his past, he slowly starts to put the pieces together. The mono-opera by award-winning composer Simone Spagnolo is scored for one singer and four instruments, and will be performed by Benjamin Bevan, whose engagements include Henry Cuffe in Britten’s Gloriana and Der Sprecher in Zauberflöte (Royal Opera House), Lescaut in Boulevard Solitude by Henze (Royal Danish Opera and Welsh National Opera), work with BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, and others.


ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE by Christoph Willibald Gluck - a revival of one of the most famous love stories, performed in English.

22nd, 24th, 25th and 28th August at 7.30pm (running time: 1h45min incl an interval)

Christoph Willibald Gluck’s opera Orpheus and Eurydice is based on the Greek myth of Orpheus, who - unable to accept the death of his beloved wife Eurydice - descends into the Underworld to bring her back. Moved by his pleas, the Spirits grant him permission, but there is one condition: while leading her out of Hades, he must not turn around and face her.
