Michael Berkeley is joined by one of Britain's best-known contemporary playwrights. Mark Ravenhill has won fame over the past decade with a series of plays whose contemporary themes, sensational subject-matter, and black humour have intrigued and scandalised audiences worldwide. His musical choices have a strong political slant and reveal a passion for opera, including Offenbach's satirical comedy
Orpheus in the Underworld, Beethoven's Fidelio, Verdi's Rigoletto, John Adams 's Nixon in China and Britten's Peter Grimes.

John Fletcher 's drama is set in Ancient Greece as the general Alcibiades persuades Athens to launch an attack on Sicily. Alcibiades was a member of the Athens baby boomer generation, whose elders had fought to give their children a society of justice, wealth and education. They explored every sexual avenue, took drugs to excess, and became the greatest consumers of the most exotic products in history. Within two years of the defeat in Sicily, imperial, democratic
Athens, the pinnacle of human civilisation, lay in ruins. Yet, as the city endured its death agonies, something new and wonderful was born - the Socratic idea of universal love.
