Don’t miss the chance to see this first complete UK production of a work by the composer of some of the world’s best-loved operas – La bohème, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, Turandot… Discover this fascinating work, complete with the “lost” last act, by the young composer “on the road to genius”. Its passionate story has much in common with Carmen. The distinguished cast is led by John Hudson, who regularly sings the major Puccini tenor roles for English National, Welsh and Scottish Operas; by Mary Plazas, who sings major roles at the Royal Opera House, throughout the UK (recently a sensational Madama Butterfly at ENO) and in international opera houses; by Antonia Sotgiu, whose current roles include Amneris and Carmen at the Royal Albert Hall (also for WNO). Nicholas Jenkins conducts and Tony Baker directs – the team which presented last season’s Mireille “extraordinary quality one has no right to expect from a modest sized company...” “World-class singing”.
