Southbank Sinfonia team up with emerging stars of the opera world in a double bill of snappy one-act operas.
Packed with eccentricity and irony, Les Mamelles de Tirésias is a whacky take on France’s complex post-war identity. Dances and parodies pepper Poulenc’s truly topsy-turvey score.
Puccini’s wickedly witty comedic take on a chunk of Dante’s Divine Comedy features one of opera’s most iconic arias, O mio babbino caro.
Our partnership with British Youth Opera sees operatic classics tackled with the fresh interpretation of music’s next generation of stars.
Booking opens late February 2020.
This performance will be two hours and 20 minutes long (with an interval).
