The Charles Dickens' classic will mark the Opera House's Christmas season for 2016 running from Saturday December 10 to Saturday January 7. Produced by Peter Frosdick, who also produced the 2015 festive production of A Christmas Carol. With the opening scenes on Christmas Eve, Great Expectations begins with escaped convict Magwitch being pursued by soldiers. As Young Pip appears through the mist he encounters the gross Magwitch and so begins the tangled tale of the young gentleman, the beautiful Estelle, the jilted Miss Havisham and of course, the convict. With a spectacular musical score the audience will follow Pip and his great expectation as he journeys through life and hardship to eventually find love in the arms of the woman who has had him spellbound since childhood.
