LPO, Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet & Music Theatre Wales win South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra has won a 2013 South Bank Sky Arts Award for Julian Anderson's The Discovery of Heaven, which was performed at the Royal Festival Hall in March 2012, conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth. Among the other winners were the Royal Court’s production of Jez Butterworth’s The River, and Complicite’s The Master and Margarita, Scottish Ballet’s A Streetcar Named Desire, and Scottish Opera and Music Theatre Wales’ Ghost Patrol.

Julian Anderson is the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Composer in Residence and the orchestra will be issuing a recording of the performance of The Discovery of Heaven in the Autumn. Ghost Patrol was composed by Stuart Macrae to a text by the novelist Louise Walsh. The work was premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 in a co-production between Scottish Opera and Music Theatre Wales, in a double bill with Huw Watkins and David Harsent's Locked Room. Scottish Ballet's A Streetcar Named Desire, based on the Tenessee Williams play, was a collaboration between theatre and film director Nancy Meckler and international choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, with music by Peter Salem.
