RECENT PRODUCTION: LET'S MAKE AN OPERA at the Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh for Aldeburgh Productions

In October 2004, I directed a new production of Let's Make an Opera, Benjamin Britten's children's opera, in the place where it had it's very first performances in 1949 - The Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh.

The Britten-Pears Estate had commissioned a new version of the play, which forms the first half of Let's Make an Opera, from the writer Simon Butteriss. My production was the world premiere of this excellent new piece.

I was very proud to have Basil Coleman, who directed the first production, in the audience.

You can find more details of the production at the Aldeburgh Productions website:
