Riding to the Erlking

We will work with students to create a new opera that explores the dark and fantastic world of the famous poem, and the strange events that lead to the dramatic ride through the wild Bavarian forest at night.

Sir Tom Finney Community High School, Preston has worked with us on many occasions in recent years, including most recently ‘You Can Only Dream’ – a project that included a memorable trip to perform on stage at the Royal Opera House in March 2009. Our new project takes place in May 2010, and will involve the whole school in a recreation of the Gothic and Germanic world of Goethe and Schubert’s Erlking. Composer Rachel Leach, designer Anna Bruder, singer Leandros Taliotis, bassist Alice Kent and horn player Laure Valiquette-Talbot will work with students to create a new opera that explores the dark and fantastic world of the famous poem, and the strange events that lead to the dramatic ride through the wild Bavarian forest at night.
