Down by the Greenwood Side

This year's Brighton Festival has a 60-minute opera which may be of interest.  It tells the story of Mrs Green, whose supernatural encounter after murdering her children heralds a lifetime of sorrow, repentance and dread and is based, of course, on the macabre 17th-century ballad The Cruel Mother.

It's being staged at the disused Harvey's depot in Lewes on Friday - Sunday, 9-11 May.

More details here.
