“From the Script to the Stage – Lights, Curtain, Action!”

Opera Prelude Lecture Series 2017

Venue: Caversham Room at Cadogan Hall

Spend a morning with Sarah Crabtree, Senior Producer for the Royal Opera, where she leads the producing team for the Linbury Theatre. Before joining the ROH, Sarah was one of the driving forces behind the commission of Will Todd’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland at Opera Holland Park.

Find out what it was like to deal with the casting and creative processes involved in getting a new production on stage; working with composer Will Todd’s skilful instrumentation and Maggie Gottlieb’s clever libretto, music filled every second of the show in this acclaimed family production which the critics described as “pure life-affirming joy!”

She will be joined by Alice Privett (soprano), who was part of OHP’s 2016 Young Artist’s Programme, and Benjamin Williamson (countertenor), both of whom will provide musical accompaniment to the morning, accompanied by Natalie Burch (piano).

Tickets £30 payable in advance. To book please call Fiona Hamilton on 07908 894333 or visit www.operaprelude.com
