English Touring Opera’s present productions of Michael Tippett’s King Priam and Britten’s rarely performed operetta Paul Bunyan at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio Theatre as part of a UK tour.

In King Priam, the king’s wife dreams their newborn son will cause his father’s death. Torn between love for the child and his duty as a king, Priam reluctantly agrees to the boy’s murder. His choice leads to a cataclysmic, bloody war.

Britten’s collaboration with W.H. Auden is musically charming, dreamlike and as surprising and innocent as a Chagall painting.
