British Youth Opera celebrates its 25th anniversary with two new productions in association with Southbank Sinfonia.
Inspired by folk tales from his native Bohemia, Bedřich Smetana’s comic masterpiece The Bartered Bride tells the story of a bride whose arranged marriage is thwarted by her true love’s cunning.
A Night At The Chinese Opera is a colourful depiction of China in the time of Kublai Khan, Marco Polo and the Orphan of Zhao whose tragic tale of military invasion and personal vendetta is mirrored by Judith Weir’s theatrically turbocharged comic-opera-within-an-opera.
