Today, we meet the composer of Little Women, Mark Adamo. After the opening of the UK Premiere of his opera, Mark tells us about his musical background, the timeless appeal of the March sisters, and the musical diversity within the piece.
Today is Inspiring Future Theatre Day, and to celebrate it, we are talking to Assistant Director, Louise Bakker, about how she got into directing, why she loves doing what she does, and why she thinks young people should pursue a career in opera. Having assisted on The Cunning Little Vixen in 2021, Louise returns as Assistant Director of the double bill of Margot la Rouge and Le Villi.
While some might define themselves by their star sign, and others by their favourite opera, the more literary-inclined will divide themselves by which March sister they believe themselves to be. But who are you really? Are you kind and mature Meg, fearless Jo, sweet Beth, or ambitious Amy?
This Friday, Hannah Sandison presents Green Spaces: A Celebration in Song, the world premiere of three newly commissioned song cycles by Mark-Anthony Turnage CBE, Zoë Martlew, and Amelia Clarkson. In this short interview, Hannah tells us about the inspiration for the project, how she curated the poems she used, and what she sees in the project’s future.
