Dubbed ‘the original Spaghetti Western,’ it is a story of true love and second chances, set in a tough mining camp during the California Gold Rush.

Joining it is director Tim Albery’s gripping production of Macbeth, which returns to the company following the success of Albery’s Otello in Winter 2013.

This excitingly dramatic, modern-dress production depicts the vivid world of the supernatural through the “bleak and elegantly styled” design of Johan Engels.
