Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival - highlights from this years festival broadcast on-line

Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival

Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival might have finished its live performances for this year's festival, but the jollity is not over as on Friday 17 September 2021 the festival is broadcasting films of three of the highlights from this year's festival. 

Things begin with The Venus Bushfires, a watch party with the creative collective which has multidisciplinary artist Helen Epega at its centre. Then comes Alastair White's latest fashion-opera, RUNE. This is the third in a sequence of works which White has been producing [see my interview with him], and RUNE features performances from Patricia Auchterlonie and Simone Ibbett-Brown, an ensemble of three grand pianos, contemporary dance with interactive sculpture, and high fashion by Ka Wa Key. Finally, the evening concludes with The Castle of Crossed Destinies with words by Giovanni Privitera and music by Matteo Fania, an adaption of Calvino's novel that shows us knights in Times Square, legendary alchemists, and invisible kings, and in an event that combines animation with live performance.

Further details from the Tête à Tête website.
