Commentaires : Renowned for his inventive, contemporary reinterpretations of classic theatre and opera Adam Spreadbury-Maher, who is directing this time around, will focus upon the quintessential quartet - Mimi, Musetta, Rodolfo (Ralph) and Marcello (Mark) - and it will be lifted from when Puccini set his opera in the early 19th century to present day East London. The production will lay bare the dangerous and damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.

Producteur :
Commentaires : The piece, adapted from the 1912 opéra bouffe "La reine joyeuse" (also known as La reine s'amuse) by Cuvillier and André Barde, was presented under the management of George Grossmith, Jr. and Edward Laurillard at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on 7 October 1920, and ran until 28 May 1921,[2] 280 performances.
A production toured Australia in 1922, under the J.C. Williamson management.
Presse : The Observer praised Grossmith's subtlety of performance, but thought "Mr. Cuvillier's music will make the play go, Mr. Berry's humour will make the play go, Miss Lily St. John's clear voice, and her delightful embarrassment at the applause she gets, will make the play go – and the setting and the costumes were thought tremendously fine." The Times praised the production: "As a riot of fantastic colour it was one of the most exhilarating that we have seen on the London stage for a long time." Of the music, the paper commented, "The official label of The Naughty Princess is opéra bouffe. Now and again certainly Cuvillier's music seemed to justify the description. … The waltz song and its Egyptian splendours will carry it far."[6]

Commentaires : Coproduction Shakespeare's Globe et The Royal Opera House
Commentaires longs: This new production follows the ground-breaking collaboration between Shakespeare’s Globe and The Royal Opera with L’Ormindo in 2014, critically acclaimed both then and when revived this year.

Once again, the period and candlelit setting of the Sam Wanamaker Theatre are ideally suited to this Baroque opera, first staged in Paris in 1647. When the opera was given its premiere at the Palais Royal, it drew much admiration, not least for its wealth of duets and ensembles alongside inventive and delightful arias. Rossi composed an ever-shifting musical mosaic to match the interweaving comic and tragic strands of the story.

Director Keith Warner creates this new production with a particularly strong cast of young singers known for their interpretations of this repertory. Continuing from L’Ormindo, the music is again under the direction of Christian Curnyn, one of the most sought after Baroque specialists of today, with the Orchestra of Early Opera Company.

The opera will be performed in English, adding further to the immediacy and intimacy of a striking work in a distinctive setting: the perspective from the past also brings us a unique experience for today.

Traviata (La) (2015-02-Coliseum Theatre-London)

Théâtre: Coliseum Theatre (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 1 mois

Commentaires : Amongst the most popular of Verdi's operas, La traviata is the work of a master of the musical drama. Its perfumed arias and soaring choruses vividly depict the ravishingly decadent but glamorous world of Parisian high society as the background to a heart rending story of romantic happiness destroyed. Original book called La Dame aux Camelias. Sung in English with English surtitles.

Une production de l'ENO (English National Opera)

Commentaires : The Turn of the Screw marked the Open Air Theatre's first collaboration with English National Opera. Open Air Theatre Artistic Director Timothy Sheader and members of the ENO orchestra brought their award-winning skills to Britten’s masterly reworking of Henry James' classic novella to create "a stunning re-imagination of Britten's ghost opera...REVELATORY" (WhatsOnStage). Soutra Gilmour created a stunning set which housed conductor Toby Purser and 13 members of the ENO orchestra, who all performed "ASTONISHINGLY" (TrendFM). As the sky got darker and night set in, the story accumulated suspense and horror with the cast instilling "a level of dread and trepidation" (The Upcoming).
Presse : Sunday Times "OUT OF THIS WORLD...an atmospheric, gripping production by Timothy Sheader."

Daily Telegraph "Chilling show does justice to James's ghostly tale...it's hard to imagine a more aptly evocative setting for Britten's masterly adaptaion than the Open Air Theatre"

Evening Standard "AN OFFERING FROM OUT OF THE SHADOWS There is a feeling of something unworldly...a psychological drama, in which the corruption of innocence is all too real."

The Guardian "This joint venture between the Open Air theatre and English National Opera works superbly well and you even feel a chill to the spine as you watch a battle for possession of children’s souls in the gathering dusk.”

Financial Times "A staging of Britten’s opera that gathers supernatural momentum. Soutra Gilmour’s set is A MASTERPIECE”

The Times "Britten’s score becomes increasingly suggestive of evil forces insidiously whittling away the sanity of trusting innocents."

WhatsOnStage "A stunning re-imagination of Britten's ghost opera...REVELATORY"


Observer "The thirteen strong chamber ensemble was impeccable...conducted with superb authority by ENO Mackeraras fellow Toby Purser Timothy Sheader's production was intelligent, cogent and, as the sky darkened, properly spooky."

TrendFM "The opera captures the spooky and supernatural undertones through Britten’s piercingly sensitive and evocative music. This is ASTONISHINGLY PERFORMED by the 13 musicians of the ENO as well as ENO’s Mackerras Fellow, Toby Purser as the orchestra’s conductor.”

Bachtrack "Director Timothy Sheader’s grip on Britten’s opera is extremely strong, bringing a sensitivity that embraced the ghoulish supernatural element of the piece, the deep, flawed humanity of the Governess and the sinister sexual insinuations of Quint’s relationship with Miles. The chances of finding a better production of this any time soon are very slim indeed."

The Upcoming "The composer’s spirit must have been commanding the cast and orchestra at Regent’s Park Theatre on Tuesday evening as their performance encompassed the fear, uncertainty and discomfort originally intended by Myfanwy Piper’s chilling libretto. The cast – along with the outstanding work of conductor Toby Purser and the English National Opera – instil a level of dread and trepidation"

The Stage "Conducting, Toby Purser ratchets up the tension over the two hours and the denser textures of the closing scenes fill the air with a palpable dramatic charge"
