Spring 2014

In a season of operas about giant cultural myths, ETO draws together Michael Tippett’s epic King Priam, Britten and Auden’s poetic “musical” Paul Bunyan, and Mozart’s classic The Magic Flute.

Rarely performed, King Priam may be the most important British opera of the last century and it’s the must-see-opera of 2014. James Conway’s new production, both epic and intimate, has elegant, shimmering designs by Anna Fleischle and Guy Hoare.

Fleischle and Hoare also design Paul Bunyan, that light opera of the American frontier. Witty and tuneful, it is also a rarity, with singing geese and cats, a saucy chorus of lumberjacks, and an enviable pair of lovers called Tiny and Slim.

Liam Steel’s enchanting production of The Magic Flute won praise everywhere on its 2009 tour, and sold out early. If you missed it, or remember it, here’s your second chance!
