About

On the bicentenary of the composer's birth in 1818, University College Opera is proud to present the British premiere of Charles Gounod's rarely performed opera Polyeucte. Based on the Corneille play Saint Polyeuctus, which had previously inspired Donizetti, it tells a tragic story of Christian martyrdom in defiance of the all-powerful powerful Roman Empire.
