Mark Adamo: Little Women

The UK premiere of an opera that has become a modern classic in the USA – “some sort of masterpiece” in the words of the New York Times. Composer Mark Adamo has adapted Louisa May Alcott’s evergreen coming-of-age novel, set around the time of the Civil War. Independent and ambitious Jo, her sisters Meg, Beth and Amy, their devoted mother, boy-next-door Laurie and studious Friedrich Bhaer are brought to life in music of open-hearted immediacy.

Frederick Delius: Margot la Rouge
Giacomo Puccini: Le Villi

This thrilling double bill of Delius and Puccini contrasts two surprise reunions between old flames. One leads to a crime of passion, the other to supernatural revenge. Delius explores a seedy corner of Paris and verismo extremes in Margot la Rouge, while the Gothic romance of Le Villi is given soaring expression by Puccini.

W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan: HMS Pinafore

Your father is a captain and the Admiral of the Fleet wants to marry you. So how do you tell them that a mere able seaman has captured your heart? A flagship of Gilbert and Sullivan’s fleet of comic operas, HMS Pinafore is a tangled tale of love that cheekily defies the social and naval hierarchy.

It follows in the wake of The Pirates of Penzance, 2021’s rip-roaring collaboration between Charles Court Opera and Opera Holland Park.

International choir and orchestra festival in Paris

Paris - city of love, dreams and senses. Nobody can think of Paris without various associations and a multitude of pictures crossing their mind: the river Seine, the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, Napoleon, the Arc de Triumphe, the Champs-Elysees. No other city exalts the imagination like this metropolis, which is also particularly popular for its musical events. As of late these also include the Paris Music Festival.
