Tête à Tête are off again

The sixth Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival is taking place between 2 and 19 August 2012. If you want to find out about the future of opera and see what people are trying out and experimenting with, then you need to be at the Riverside Studios in August. There will be over 30 performances by 30 companies, all new work.

Tête à Tête themselves are developing two new commissions, an adaptation of Elizabeth Bowen's Making Arrangements with music by Charlotte Bray. And Samuel Bordoli's adaptation of Kafka's Amerika. There will be visting companies galore and the chance to see work in progress, sketches of work to be and fully formed operas. Of course the 2010 festival was notable, amongst other things, for the concert performance of my opera When a Man Knows!

But the 2012 will be the place to test the waters of opera of tomorrow.
