* * * * - Planet Hugill - 'A very enterprising off-West End run with a terrific young cast, the results were miraculous.'

Opera Today - 'Bonatto treats Donizetti's gentle comedy with a light touch, and his production is neat and nimble.'

British Theatre Guide - 'The singing and playing both sparkle. Great fun delightfully presented.'

Charing Cross Theatre Productions presents its hilarious new production of Rita composed by Gaetano Donizetti, with libretto by Gustave Vaez, in a new English-language translation and new orchestration for chamber ensemble by Alejandro Bonatto, who will also direct the production.

This funny domestic comedy has delighted audiences since its premiere. Never performed in Donizetti's lifetime, it premiered posthumously at the Opera-Comique in Paris on 7 May 1860, 12 years after his death.

Cast: RITA - Laura Lolita Peresivana, BEPPE - Brenton Spiteri, GASPARO - Phil Wilcox

Creatives: Director - Alejandro Bonatto, Conductor - Mark Austin, Production Designer - Nicolai Hart-Hansen, Lighting Designer - David Seldes
