In collaboration with the Royal Opera House and Britten Pears Arts, we perform in Britten’s shattering chamber opera.

In a world brutalised by conflict, one woman’s experience of horrific violence becomes the defining moment of an era. Benjamin Britten’s shattering chamber opera explores some of the darkest drives in the human psyche – and what happens when power and war give them free rein. In this contemporary new staging at the Linbury Theatre we collaborate with the Royal Opera House as Oliver Mears directs, while Corinna Niemeyer conducts a cast drawn from the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme and the Jette Parker Artists Programme.
