British Youth Opera autumn season

Your chance to spot the opera stars of the future - British Youth Opera's annual residency at London's Peacock Theatre is from 8 to 15 September this year. As ever they are performing an enterprising pair of operas, both being performed by BYO for the first time. Smetana's The Bartered Bride will be given in Kit Hesketh-Harvey's English translation, directed by Rodula Gaitanou and conducted by Peter Robinson. And Judith Weir's A Night at the Chinese Opera will be receiving some welcome London exposure in a production directed by Stuart Barker and conducted by Lionel Friend. Amazingly this represents the work's 25th anniversary, and be only the fourth British production. Further details from the British Youth Opera website.
