Discovery Session: Michael Tippett’s The Knot Garden
Wednesday 20 November at 11:00 am - 12:30 pm£7.50
As we are focussing on Tippett this year, we look at another of his most famous works: his remarkable opera The Knot Garden, premiered to rapturous critical acclaim in Covent Garden in 1970. As in so many other works, Tippett explores relationships and personal journeys but the orchestration and musical language in this opera is innovative and bracingly modern. With Tippett’s biographer Oliver Soden and Lucy Walker.
