Discovery Session: Harrison Birtwistle’s The Mask of Orpheus
Wednesday 16 October 2019 at 11:00 am - 12:30 pm£7.50
To coincide with the English National Opera production of Birtwistle’s remarkable opera, this session explores the complex telling of the Orpheus myth. It follows in the tradition of other operatic versions of this story, but completely overturns traditional operatic form. With its innovation and far-reaching influence, it is truly a landmark British work. With Lucy Walker.
