Guildhall Opera Double Bill

Miss Fortune & The Telephone

A young woman in the middle of a city street

Guildhall School’s Opera department presents a double bill of operatic works exploring romantic love, fate and fortune. 

Commissioned by Bregenz Festival and the Royal Opera House and premiered in 2011, Miss Fortune is a contemporary re-telling of a Sicilian folk story. Judith Weir’s opera is a story about Tina and how her life dramatically changes course overnight; it is a story about fate and fortune.  

Written specifically for performance on American television in 1947, Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera The Telephone is a romantic comedy in one act, written for just two singers and a hand-picked chamber ensemble of instrumentalists.  

Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

A recording of this production will be available to watch online for free after the performances. Watch online from 25 March.


Students in possession of a valid Students' Union card, over 60s/OAPs, under 18s.
