ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

In 1914 a suffragette slashed the painting in the National Gallery known as the Rokeby Venus. A hundred years later, the process began to select crews for a one-way mission to Mars. In 2027, as the spacecraft hurtles through space, humanity holds its breath… can the planet be colonised? But has anyone reckoned on Venus? An opera about the power of the gods – and a myth waiting to happen.

✩✩✩✩ “Packing all the punches – As a feminist call to arms, The Art of Venus may chill the stomachs of an audience with its visceral punch, but it’s undeniably timely and relevant. Edward Lambert’s score felt sumptuously melodic, as well as busily fresh, with strong, intensely written passages building to moments of euphoric surprise. I walked out feeling as though my head had just been dipped in an ice-cold bucket of gin and tonic: shaken, astonished, and utterly exhilarated.”
