Donizetti's Rita Tickets
Charing Cross Theatre Productions presents its new production of Rita or Deux Hommes Et Une Femme, composed by Gaetano Donizetti, with libretto by Gustave Vaëz, in a new English-language translation and new orchestration for chamber ensemble by Alejandro Bonatto, who will also direct the production.
