In this episode, OHP Director of Opera James Clutton is joined by soprano Anush Hovhannisyan and conductor Dane Lam who were due to be working together this summer in our postponed 2020 production of Eugene Onegin. They discuss the initial stages of working on a new opera, from studying the score at home to the first days in the rehearsal room, and the dialogue that exists between the director, conductor and principal singers. Both former Young Artists (at ROH and OHP respectively), they reflect on the importance of these schemes on their career and how they're keeping busy during lock down.
From the Producer’s Office is a series of informal podcasts with Opera Holland Park’s Director of Opera, James Clutton. In conversation with creatives and collaborators across the industry, we explore the process of putting opera on stage, and how the artists involved approach their craft.
