Village Romeo and Juliet - Back in London
The first performance in London for 50 years of Delius's A Village Romeo and Juliet takes place at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Tuesday 25 September in a concert performance. Amazingly, despite the Delius 150th anniversary celebrations, there doesn't seem to be a major production planned by any of the opera houses. So all credit to Ronald Corp and his New London Orchestra for filling the breach. They will be joined by a fabulous cast including Andrew Staples, Anna Devin, Christopher Maltman, Andrew Shore and David Wilson-Johnson. Further details from the New London Orchestra's website and tickets from the Southbank website.
