The Consul

Guildhall School presents Menotti's tragic opera

Guildhall School presents Menotti's tragic opera The Consul

Menotti’s tragic – and extraordinarily topical – opera follows a political dissident on the run from the secret police.

The Consul is the piece that launched Menotti's distinguished career and won him the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1950.

Music and libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti

Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

'The Tale of Januarie' was the first opera to be written in Middle English and received its world-premiere in the spring term. Our cameras went behind the scenes and followed the action as the production brought together almost the entire School.
