Witch: an opera
Pre-Concert Talk with Toby Young at 6:45pm; Concert 7.30pm.
Since 2005, students of the Opera and Music Theatre course directed by Professor Martyn Harry have created a number of cutting-edge, experimental music theatre productions of works by Berio, Wishart, Kagel and Cage, as well as the memorable world premiere production of Chris Garrard’s ‘A Handmaid’s Tale’ at the JdP in 2013. This year’s production is a new work composed by one of Britain’s finest young composers, Toby Young. (N.B. We regret to inform you that there will no longer be a presentation of Andriessen's Anaïs Nin before Witch due to the new opera's technical demands and staging requirements. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.)
£5 students, £10 stalls, £13 gallery. This event will be livestreamed from our website from 6:45pm, starting with an introduction to the piece by the composer Toby Young.
