The Guildhall School’s award-winning Opera Programme makes its Barbican Theatre debut in 2012. Ahead of the one-hundredth anniversary of Benjamin Britten’s birth, Guildhall School singers and musicians present one of the composer’s most spellbinding works. Britten and Peter Pears adapted Shakespeare’s play to form the opera’s libretto, with the finished opera receiving its first performance in Aldeburgh on 11 June 1960. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see Guildhall School opera’s take on this 20th-century masterpiece.
