The Grand Burstin Hotel

A tale of life backstage before going on stage. Told by witches. With music.

Written by & starring Bridget Hardy, Penny Rossano, and Samantha Houston.

Welcome to Backstage! Here, you will find the ‘Ladies of the Chorus’ getting ready for opening night of Verdi’s Macbetto.

If you’re a regular opera-goer in this area, you’ll have seen these three before as Cigarette Girls, Geishas, and Nuns – this time, they are the Witches!*

Despite their numerous appearances over the years, would you recognise them out on the high street? Or know their names if you ever met them? Who really are the people you only seem to see ‘upstage’?

* There are only three witches due to budgetary constraints.
