Event Details

The University of St Andrews Opera Society proudly present their exciting new production of John Blow’s Venus and Adonis. Let John Blow’s sumptuous baroque score transport you to the foothills of arcadia where Cupid’s stray arrow has caused Venus’ desires and passion to fall upon the hunter, Adonis. Taken from Ovid’s metamorphosis, this rarely performed tale of desire and grief showcases the talents of young performers across the university community.

Admission: £10, £8 for students, £5 for society members. Tickets available in advance from the Byre Box Office: 01334 475000
