As we look forward to the 15th edition of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival the company widens its remit with events at Royal College of Music, in Cornwall & North Shields

the 15th edition of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival

This Summer sees the 15th edition of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival, running from 15 August to 11 September 2022 across London and online. Recent festivals have featured operas involving trampolines, libido-saving crocodiles, queer feminist gardening societies and much more besides and we can't wait for this new edition.

But the company is also widening its remit, creating events and supporting artists throughout the year and across the country. In May, the company is joining forces again with the Royal College of Music (RCM) to present Odysseys, six mini-operas created by RCM composers and performed by RCM students. Each opera features an unexpected protagonist embarking on a journey of self-acceptance - from the metamorphosis of a butterfly to a zombie. The performances take place in the RCM's Britten Theatre, 14 & 15 May 2022, further details from the RCM website.

Then in June, Bill Bankes-Jones is directing a production of The Firework-Maker's Daughter, David Bruce's 2013 opera based on the book by Philip Pullmann. The opera was premiered by the Opera Group and this new production debuts outdoors at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall on 21 June 2022 before travelling to Prideaux Place in July.

Then, in July, the company will stage HOME, a new community opera led by the company's music Director Timothy Burke, which explores what 'home' means to the people of North Shields. Performances take place at The Parks Sports Centre, North Shields in North Tyneside on 16 July 2022.
