Pegasus Opera Company - Double Bill

Pegasus Opera Company is returning to the stage with another double bill of works featuring composer Philip Hagemann. The company performs a new double bill at the Royal Academy of Music's Susie Sainsbury Theatre from 10 to 12 September 2021. Hagemann's chamber adaptation of Debussy's L'enfant prodigue will be performed alongside Hagemann's comic melodrama Passion, Poison and Petrifaction which is adapted from a play by George Bernard Shaw. 

The cast for the performances features the company's artistic director, soprano Alison Buchanan, alongside Roberto Abate, Themba Mvulawho, Bernadine Pritchet, George Reynolds, Sandeep Gurrapadi, Chuma Sijeqa and Donna Batemann. Both operas are directed by Harry Fehr.

They produce high-quality performances and balance this with a focus on artist development of emerging artists of African and Asian heritage and bringing their work onto eminent platforms. For almost thirty years, Pegasus Opera Company has been the go to organisation for opera and musical theatre singers, composers, instrumentalists and directors predominantly, but not exclusively, from diverse African, Caribbean, and Asian backgrounds.
