Of foxes and children

Wednesday 9 March 2011

Now that Il tabarro and Gianni Schicchi have opened, and while La clemenza di Tito is in the last stages of preparation on stage at the Hackney Empire, I am thinking about Foxtales, the beautiful book and CD we have made from the 22 songs composed and performed by children in 20 schools around the country, from their extraordinary art work mixed with the work of our season designer Neil Irish, and from the text prepared by our own Tim Yealland (who has directed the opera Fantastic Mr Fox, which inspired the project).

We have dedicated the book and CD to the wonderful Morrell, indomitable, encouraging, and very sadly missed.
