Quartet opened in the West End in 1999 with Donald Sinden and was filmed in 2012 with Maggie Smith and Billy Connolly. It was also - surprisingly - a massive hit in Finland as 'Kvartetti'.
Set in a retirement home for musicians, Quartet is a bittersweet mellow study of age, friendship, alienation and reconciliation. Three elderly former opera singers, who often worked together, are about to be joined by newcomer Jean, a major star in her day and to whom Reginald was once - unhappily - married. Is there any chance that these four will ever sing together again? Three of the four are keen to recreate the third act quartet from Rigoletto... but one isn't.
