“Sex is a weapon”.
Ravaged by war, the men are disillusioned and unsure any more of what they are fighting for.
The women meanwhile hold the fort, but with their families in tatters.
Lysistrata has a plan to put an end to the senseless fighting, but it comes at a high price… Can the women of Greece do it? Will the men succumb? Who will come out on top?
Lysistrata is a World Premiere Opera commissioned by the MA Music Theatre course at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Directed by Bill Bankes-Jones (founder and Artistic Director of Tête à Tête), with Musical Direction by Julian Kelly, Movement Direction by Yarit Dor and Design by Colin Mayes.
