Step into the enigmatic world of Madame Flora's parlour, where deception and desperation intertwine in Gian Carlo Menotti's opera, "The Medium." This gripping two-act opera weaves a haunting journey as it follows the tragic story of Monica, Toby, and the tormented Madame Flora.

Set in the aftermath of World War II, and centres on Madame Flora, her daughter Monica and Toby, a mute servant boy Flora adopted but is mercilessly cruel towards. Madame Flora makes the family's meagre living by conducting sham seances for grieving parents, using Monica to pretend to be the spirit of their dead children. When during a seance Flora suddenly senses a hand around her throat, she becomes convinced that the spirit world is seeking revenge. As the tension builds, secrets unravel, and darkness descends upon the parlour, "The Medium" culminates in a shocking climax that will leave you breathless.

"The Medium" will leave you haunted and moved, long after the final curtain falls. Experience the power of Menotti's masterpiece in this unforgettable theatrical journey.
