Formations masterclasses

Formations is the Helios Collective's annual opera masterclass programme, intended to bring together some of the very best emerging singers, directors, designers, composers, librettists, and producers for fourteen days of intensive performance and production training.

This year the masterclasses culminate in two evenings of shows (on 16 & 17 November) at ENO's Lilian Baylis House. Formations will showcase two new commissions, hunger by composer Joanna Ward and librettist Ryan Hay, and The Storm by composer and librettist LewisCoenen-Rowe, as well as a revival of a production that features some of the performance and production artists from previous Formations masterclasses, Noah Mosley's Mad King Suibhne with a libretto by Ivo Mosley.

The teams involved in staging hunger and The Storm take part in masterclasses with some of opera's most renowned practitioners, including the ENO’s artistic director Daniel Kramer, the Master of The Queen’s Music Judith Weir, and Buxton International Festival’s artistic director Stephen Barlow.

Masterclasses and performances are open to the public, further information from the Helios Collective website.
