The MandrakeThe Mandrake
by David Crook

Woodhouse Opera Festival

Mercurius is presenting a one off performance of Machiavelli's 1504 comedy The Mandrake in a new version by writer David Crook at the Woodhouse Opera Festival on May 20th at 4pm.

The play will be interspersed with Renaissance music played on period instruments by the Kings Waits. We're discussing the future of this project with several early music groups and are hoping to develop a production combining theatre and music / play and concert for concert venues later in the year.
