New Opera in development for ROH2

Posted on Monday, December 4, 2006

I've just signed the contract to develop a new opera with the Royal Opera House's ROH2. It's not a full commission yet, I've basically been funded to do the first stage of development work and will give a private workshop performance in about a years time, before everyone decides where we go next. It's so exciting to be back in the opera world again, and thrilling to have such a prestigious backer for the first stage of the project.

I should mention that this part of the ROH2's work is backed by the same people who supported Push! - now calling themselves OperaGenesis. The Genesis Foundation appears to have done a great job at taking all the best features from the old Genesis Opera Project and developed a new 'rolling' scheme where each project is allowed to develop in its own way and on its own terms, rather than the old-style competition approach.

Good one! My lovely Uncle used to take me to watch a lot of Aussie folk music when I was a child. We just sent him off yesterday with a great old jam session, and I thought I would google lagerphone, as this was missing.
Thanks for the pics!
