Hell’s teeth this has snuck up on me – I was being all relaxed thinking July and it turns out JUNE and IT’S NOW! The thing is “[a] stunning new opera, inspired by themes in Milton’s poetic masterpiece Paradise Lost, is an ecological parable for an audience facing up to the urgent challenge of changing climate”, it’s called Seven Angels.
“The eagerly-awaited first opera from one of the UK’s most admired young composers – Luke Bedford”. BCMG are doing the premiere before it goes to Glasgow, tonight’s has already happened but tomorrow there’s a matinee so it doesn’t clash with the Fierce Start Party @ A E Harris. Then on Monday at the Welsh College of Music, which is less convenient.
