A Summer of Anniversary's

(May 02, 2016)

Helen is excited to be involved in the world premiere of In Parenthesis this summer.  It is a new commission by Iain Bell to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.  It will be performed at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden on the actual anniversary and will be broadcast through a live stream.  Performances will also take place at the Wales Millenium Centre and the Birmingham Hippodrome.  

The other anniversary productions this summer will be Cavalleria Rusticana & Paglliaci.  WNO premiered with these operas 70 years ago and so we perform them again to celebrate 70 years of the company.
