On the opening night of a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew in 1940s Baltimore, the tempestuous love lives of actor-manager Fred Graham and his leading lady (and ex-wife) Lilli Vanessi are set to collide.

Throw in Fred's current paramour Lois Lane and her gambler boyfriend Bill - plus a couple of gun-toting gangsters who somehow get caught up in the show - and the stage is set for a funny and farcical battle of the sexes!

Cole Porter's riotously inventive homage to the sparkling wit of Shakespeare, Kiss Me, Kate is an irresistible celebration of the joy and madness of working in theatre.

With show-stopping songs including 'BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE,' 'ALWAYS TRUE TO YOU IN MY FASHION' and 'SO IN LOVE,' performed by an all-singing, all-dancing cast of international singers and West End stars, this spectacular new production is simply 'TOO DARN HOT' to miss out on!'

New 2018 dates at the London Coliseum have been announced for Opera North's award-winning production of Cole Porter's classic musical comedy, Kiss Me, Kate. Running from 20 ' 30 June 2018, it is the first time this hit production has been seen in the West End.

Casting will bring together top talent from the worlds of both opera and the West End, with the full-scale Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North bringing the magical sound of Broadway and the golden age of MGM musicals back to life on stage. Tickets are now on sale.

Richard Mantle, General Director of Opera North said:
"Kiss Me, Kate is a real treat of a show, boasting what is probably Cole Porter's richest, most accomplished theatrical score, brought to life by the talented forces of the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North, and combining the best opera and musical theatre performers. We are thrilled to announce this new transfer to the heart of the West End following two hugely successful runs in the repertoire of Opera North and our co-producers Welsh National Opera. We are especially pleased during this trip to the capital to be heading to the London Coliseum, a magnificent venue which is the home of our good friends at ENO, and revisiting our roots as - originally - English National Opera North."

The London run of Kiss Me, Kate will follow performances at Leeds Grand Theatre in May 2018.
