Flavour of the month

Tagora will not be alone in performing Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard next January. A few days after our production the Belgian Compagnie Premiers Actes will be staging La Cerisaie (in French) at the TAPS Scala in Strasbourg. A chance to compare two language versions – and two different approaches to the classic play.

The Cube noir: season 2014-15

For those who are here, don’t forget Théâtralis on 3 to 6 July.

Ten tickets available, spread over three nights (3, 4 and 5 July). If you’re interested, e-mail montypython@tagora.eu, Continue reading →
