Lazzaro (Tardiolo) lives in an isolated village ruled with an iron fist by the cruel Marchesa. He’s a happy-go-lucky peasant whose sweet nature gets mistaken for simple-mindedness by people around him – including the Marchesa’s petulant son Tancredi, who embroils Lazzaro in a kidnapping scheme to steal his mother’s money. Rohrwacher follows up The Wonders with a time and genre-bending meld of themes, allegories, and pop-culture and folk references.

Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less).
