THE BROWNING VERSION & BEFORE DAWN

September 1987

'The Browning Version' - Trapped in an empty marriage, a teacher realises that his life has amounted to nothing, before a spontaneous act of kindness rekindles the humanity in a devastated spirit. The other half of the evening - 'Before Dawn', and into the world of Italian opera: a diva and a devil - what might have happened if Tosca had failed to kill Scarpia.
