The Guildhall School of Music and Drama's Autumn programme is full of rather interesting things. Their opera is Dvorak's The Cunning Peasant, an early work which will be directed by Stephen Medcalf (3,7,5,10/11). Iain Burnside's new music theatre piece, Why does the Queen Die? is a co-commission with the Oxford Lieder Festival's 2014 Schubert Project, and it explores the connections between Schubert and his Viennese circle of friends (15, 16, 17/10 at the Oxford Lieder Festival). The season opens with performance of Verdi's Requiem at the Barbican Hall conducted by Mark Shanahan, with Elisabeth Meister, Victoria Simmonds, Adrian Thompson and Derek Welton (26/9).

Drama includes Debbie Horsfield's True Dare Kiss, David Hare's South Downs, Terence Rattigan's The Browning Version and Rebecca Lenkiewicz's Her Naked Skin. Further information from the Guildhall School's website.
