As our players join forces with their operatic counterparts in British Youth Opera, Southbank Sinfonia makes an autumn ‘transfer’ to the West End’s Peacock Theatre.
Many worlds collide in this Baroque caprice as Shakespeare's lovers from A Midsummer Night's Dream are shipwrecked on the fantasy island of The Tempest. Jeremy Sams’ libretto is set to the works of Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, and others. First performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 2011, this production marks the European premiere of The Enchanted Island.
