Following performances at the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, the popular production will be taking to the stage for one night only at Paignton’s Palace Theatre on Saturday, 22 September at 7.30pm.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Persuasion – the last novel fully completed by Austen, first published six months after her death in 1818.

The story concerns Anne Elliot, a young woman whose family moves house to get out of debt and rents their home to an admiral and his wife.

It is regarded as one of the most powerful love stories ever written and Chamber Opera Tours’ adaptation – Jane Austen’s Persuasion: A Musical Drama – has toured the UK and North America for the past five years.

It features music from Austen’s manuscripts and the era, fully staged with chamber orchestra, beautiful Regency costumes, projected scenery, and world-champion Irish dancers.

Described as ‘a treat for the eyes and ears…astounding!’ (Isle of Wight County Press) and ‘one of the best evening’s entertainment I’ve had!’ (Bury Free Press), the performance is sure to thrill Austen fans of all ages.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £15, available from the Palace Theatre, Palace Avenue, Paignton, or by calling the box office on 01803 665800 or 522522. Alternatively, visit www.palacetheatrepaignton.co.uk or for more information, visit www.chamberoperatours.org
