Puppetry in Opera
There is a two day seminar, fascinatingly titled Puppetry in Opera being organised by the Puppet Centre. Taking place on 9 and 10 November at the Barbican and Central School of Speech and Drama. Day one includes a showing of work in progress at the Pit, plus speakers such as David Pountney, Daniel Snowman and Annabel Arden. Then day two has a series of workshops taking a forthcoming Opera Group/Opera North/ROH2 production as a case study with sessions including 'How to make a puppet sing'. Sounds completely fascinating. More details from the Puppet Centre website.
