Death of Sir Frank Kermode

18th August 2010

It is with regret that the staff and artists at English Touring Opera record the death of scholar and author Frank Kermode last night, Tuesday 17 August. Frank’s collaboration with Alexander Goehr on a new opera version of King Lear called Promised End was one of his last creative works. ETO’s premiere of this new opera goes into rehearsal at the end of this month. Frank repeated recently how keenly he hoped to live to attend its first performances. We will miss him deeply at those, and send our sympathy to his family and friends in Cambridge and around the world.
