Great Expectations

More new opera. Tête à Tête are at it again, this time in collaboration with composers and musicians from the Royal College of Music. On 11 and 12 May they will be producing six short operas, all on the subject of 'Great Expectations' at the Royal College of Music (RCM), written by young composers and librettists from the college. Subjects include the Titanic and Scott's expedition to the South Pole. All the operas will be directed by the indefatigable Bill Bankes Jones, conducted by Gerry Cornelius and designed by Ellan Parry. Tickets from the RCM website.
