Sir Richard Rodney Bennett’s All The King’s Men is a moving and hugely enjoyable children’s opera, inspired by the popular ‘Humpty-Dumpty’ rhyme about a weapon created during the English Civil War. Royalist soldiers attempt to seize control of Gloucester by building a siege-engine to cross the River Severn, but the river is widened – with devastating consequences.
Michael Barry directs a Festival cast and Derbyshire children in this classic of its kind.
