The Rake’s Progress UK tour comes to Liverpool
December 1, 2021
British born New Zealand tenor Frederick Jones is making his principal debut with Glyndebourne Opera in the UK, performing the role of Tom Rakewell, one of the main characters in Igor Stravinsky’s opera The Rake’s Progress.
Considered one of the Glyndebourne greats, John Cox’s much-loved production is returning for the first time in a decade, bringing David Hockney’s iconic designs to a new generation.
After a strange encounter with the mysterious Nick Shadow, Jones’ character abandons country life and his sweetheart Anne for the temptations of the city. But London’s glittering promise soon corrodes, and love, money and even sanity slip further and further from Tom’s grasp. Can true love save him, or will the Devil have the last laugh?
