And the LDN-based events the ThisWeek team is tipping today are….

OPERA: Le Coq D’or | English National Opera | 8-10 Jul
The first in a season of works from the artists and orchestra of the Moscow State Music Theatre, Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov’s rarely-seen ‘Golden Cockerel’ re-tells Pushkin’s fairy tale of an aged Tsar who asks a sorcerer to bring peace to his kingdom. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: The Events | Young Vic | 8 Jul – 2 Aug
This heavy-going play by Scottish writer David Grieg, which is back  by demand at the Young Vic ahead of a transfer to NYC, centres on gay priest Claire, who experiences an atrocity and thereafter strives to understand the breadth of the terrible things she’s seen. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Then | Soho Theatre | 8-13 Jul (pictured)
Innovative theatre-maker Yve Blake creates an audiovisual fabric of stories, voicemails, images and playlists donated by over 500 participants in answer to the question,‘Who do you feel you used to be?’ The show gives in insight into their relationships, and celebrates the idiots, heroes and strangers we once were. Details and tickets here.
