The Gardeners is Opera Now's event of the month for August

The Gardeners - Event of the Month - Opera Now Magazine
Joanna Wyld and my opera The Gardeners is Opera Now magazine's Event of the Month for August on their website, with a review by Josephine Miles of the work's premiere at Conway Hall in June 2019.

'Hugill’s concept and Joanna Wyld’s libretto did not shy away from addressing pertinent and provocative themes of our own times: the impact of borders, the importance of tolerance and respect… Any new musical work that tackles such issues should be welcomed.' - Josephine Miles, Opera Now.

The Gardeners returns on Monday 9 September 2019 with a performance at The Garden Museum in Lambeth, with Peter Brathwaite as the Old Gardener, Julian Debreuil as the Gardener, Magid El-Bushra as the Angry Young Man, Georgia Mae Bishop as the Mother and Flora McIntosh as the Grandmother with an instrumental ensemble conducted by William Vann. Further details from The Gardeners website.
