Brought to power in a populist wave, Silla surrounds himself with loyalists and sycophants.
Taking what - and who - he wants, power quickly corrupts.
It may be that those closest to him are in fact his greatest threat ...
A story as resonant now as it was when originally performed in 1713, don't miss this outstanding new production of a true operatic rarity.
Accompanied by the Eboracum Baroque Orchestra in a new English translation by Martin Pickard.
About the venue
In partnership with the Leeds Schools of Arts at Leeds Beckett University, we're thrilled to be performing Silla at their new theatre right in the heart of Leeds City Centre.
Part of the School of Arts' new £80m home (off Millennium Square) the Theatre provides outstanding technical and rehearsal facilities for our creative team to realise their vision for the production. The building has recently been shortlisted for 'Building of the Year' by the Architect's Journal.
