And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Puccini’s Tosca | Hackney Empire | 4-9 Mar
It’s a well loved opera, a story of love set against the backdrop of a war-torn Rome, featuring themes of lust, corruption, politics and sacrifice: one might even say it’s not for the faint of heart, the sort of viscerally gripping tale that’s only for those made of harder stuff. What do you mean, I’m trying to make you try opera? Well, yes, okay, I’m trying to make you try opera, and don’t be put off by the Italian language, there are surtitles, you will follow, and this will be great. See this page here for info.

Mini Rumpus – Woodland Tails | Vault Festival | 4-5 Mar
Something for the younger ones now, as it’s a Saturday. Over at the lovely Vault Festival this weekend you can expect a “carnival party extravaganza” with this immersive event for under-11s and their adults, to include dancing, live bands, circus acts, performing woodland creatures, games and stories. And the excellent Figs in Wigs. Click this link here for more.

Phantasmagoria Cabaret | Hoxton Hall | 4 Mar (pictured)
Following a sold out performance in the autumn, Patrizia Paolini and a new line up of guests are back to “ask the big questions” and offer an “examination of the consequences of flitting between the real and the inauthentic self”. Featuring the very classy acts that are Julian Fox, Glory Pearl, Chris Lynam, Yanaëlle Thiran and Matt Rudkin. Head this way for details.
