Following a sold out run at Hampstead Theatre in 2015, David Hare’s critically acclaimed play, The Moderate Soprano, will now receive its West End premiere next spring, running at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 5 April to 30 June 2018.
Jeremy Herrin will return to direct the play with brand new set and costume designs by the multi award-winning theatre and opera designer, Bob Crowley.
Olivier Award winners Roger Allam and Nancy Carroll will reprise the roles of Glyndebourne founder John Christie and soprano Audrey Mildmay.
Further casting for the West End is still to be announced.

Glyndebourne was triumphantly born amidst stiff manhattans, rolling lawns and the sound of sheep from across the HaHa.
It was to become revered the world over.
