Midsummer Marriage ROH 05_120
Will Hartmann
Tippett’s operatic battle of the sexes returns to the Royal Opera House 50 years after its word premiere and a century after the composer’s birth. This revival of Graham Vick’s acclaimed 1996 production sees John Tomlinson return to the role of the King Fisher.

The soaring music of lovers Mark and Jenifer, the powerful oracular revelations of Sosostris, the evocative choruses and the well-known Ritual Dances help tell the story of two couples and an angry father.
