English Touring Opera returns to Storyhouse in Chester April 7–9 with a trio of new shows: Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Mozart’s Così fan tutte and the St John Passion by J S Bach.

The shows will be particularly special for two Chester choirs, who will sing alongside ETO performers: Chester Festival Chorus and Chester Cathedral Saturday Singing Club.

English Touring Opera’s resident period orchestra, the Old Street Band, will feature in all three shows on baroque and classical instruments.
