2016/17 Season overview

With work drawn from both popular and lesser-known repertoire, the 2016/17 season gives full rein to the versatility of the Company’s full-time core ensembles. The Orchestra of Opera North continues to be the only UK orchestra which has a year-round symphonic concert programme in addition to its work in the opera house, with several concerts being conducted by new music director and principal conductor, Aleksandar Markovic. Meanwhile, members of the Chorus of Opera North will take on more than 40 named roles throughout the season’s productions, in addition to the strength of their ensemble work, which will come to the fore in the all-male Billy Budd and all-female Suor Angelica. In September, the Chorus will be restored to its full strength of 36 with the recruitment of 13 new choristers in a bold move to strengthen the company ensemble, and will be led by a new Chorus Master, Oliver Rundell who joins Opera North from Scottish Opera.

Opera North’s 16/17 season opens with the return of a much-loved classic, Der Rosenkavalier, with its depiction of age and experience set against the hopes and dreams of expectant young love. Appearing for the first time in his new role as Opera North’s Music Director, Aleksandar Markovic conducts Strauss’s beguiling, post-Wagnerian score, with a cast including Ylva Kihlberg as the Marschallin and Helen Sherman as Octavian.

Staged in a diptych with Il tabarro, which was originally seen as part of Opera North’s award-winning ‘Eight Little Greats’ season of one-act operas in 2004, a new production of Puccini’s Suor Angelica is directed by Michael Barker-Caven. French soprano Anne Sophie Duprels takes the title role of Suor Angelica, while the cast of Il tabarro is headed by Ivan Inverardi as Michele, Giselle Allen as Giorgetta and David Butt Philip as Luigi.

Another welcome returnee, Orpha Phelan directs a brand new production of Britten’s Billy Budd – an opera which was last seen on the Opera North stage over two decades ago. This new production brings together some of the country’s leading Britten interpreters including Roderick Williams and Alan Oke. Scottish conductor Garry Walker makes his Opera North debut.

As the evenings lengthen into Winter, storytelling and the perennial appeal of folklore takes centre stage in three brand new productions of operatic fairy-tales: Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Snow Maiden, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and Rossini’s Cinderella (La Cenerentola). Director John Fulljames’s interpretation of The Snow Maiden and Edward Dick’s production of Hansel and Gretel delve deep into the twisted nature of the original folk tales, reworking the storylines in contemporary settings, while Aletta Collins directs an unabashedly comic and romantic take on one of Rossini’s most sparklingly light confections, Cinderella.

The three fairy-tale productions will share basic elements of a highly adaptable set, designed by Giles Cadle, with the inventive use of video characterizing each of the operas, from live on-stage video in Hansel and Gretel to projected dreamscapes in The Snow Maiden, blurring the line between reality and fantasy. This adaptability makes it possible for the Company to give additional Saturday matinee performances of Cinderella in Leeds and on tour, as well as a series of special matinees of Hansel and Gretel for Schools groups at all tour venues, as part of Opera North’s extensive education and community engagement programme.

All seven of the productions in the Autumn and Winter seasons will open at Opera North’s home in Leeds, the Grand Theatre, before touring to cities throughout the North of England. Regular tour venues for all mainstage productions after running in Leeds include the Theatre Royal Newcastle, The Lowry at Salford Quays in Greater Manchester, and the Theatre Royal in Nottingham. Opera North will also visit the Festival Theatre, Edinburgh in November with Billy Budd and the double-bill of Il tabarro/Suor Angelica, and will take the Winter season productions of The Snow Maiden, Hansel and Gretel and Cinderella to the Grand Opera House in Belfast in March 2017.

 

Richard Mantle, General Director, comments:

“The coming year is an especially exciting time in the life of Opera North. Not only do we present six brand new productions, we also welcome our new music director, Aleksandar Markovic, who joins us as Richard Farnes steps down after twelve illustrious years at the helm. It is fourteen years since we last performed Der Rosenkavalier, so it is with great relish that we look forward to Aleksandar’s debut performances conducting Strauss’s major work.

“Opera is all about the telling of great stories about life, amplified by some of the most powerful music ever written. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in our coming season with Billy Budd, considered by some to be Britten’s greatest achievement for the stage, Puccini in compact form and our three operatic fairy tales, those most fascinating stories of all.

“A pioneering aspect of Opera North’s work over the past decade has been its dramatic concert performances of several large-scale works, culminating in complete cycles of the Ring in 2016. We continue to mine this rich seam of work in 2017 with a concert staging of Puccini’s mighty last opera Turandot, which Aleksandar Markovic conducts, bringing the season to a close.”

 

Howard Assembly Room and Opera North Projects

With its diverse programme of music, film, drama and talks, the Howard Assembly Room, Opera North’s intimate performance venue, has rapidly established itself at the heart of Leeds dramatic and artistic life. The 2016/17 season continues to explore musical traditions from around the globe with an eclectic selection of world-class artists working in a variety of genres, including the highly-regarded Master Musicians of Jajouka, Dublin-based folk group Lynched and, from the classical world, The Tallis Scholars and Sarah Connolly CBE, one of Britain’s foremost mezzo-sopranos.

Challenging new work that explores the meeting points between the classical and contemporary is the focus of Opera North Projects which collaborates with artists from a range of disciplines on innovative initiatives across the country. This year, new productions include Flit, a musical-theatrical work from Martin Green (Lau), co-produced by Opera North, which will be performed at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2016 before a UK tour.

Following the huge success of Lulu: A Murder Ballad, Opera North joined forces with the provocative cult band The Tiger Lillies once more to create The Tiger Lillies – Love for Sale which premiered in Manchester in 2015. An evening of Cole Porter classics, darkly reinterpreted by Martyn Jacques and his band, Love for Sale will be making its London debut at the Soho Theatre in July. No less thrilling will be The One Who Loves and Lets Go, when Opera North returns to Latitude Festival to perform in the atmospheric setting of the Faraway Forest. Inspired by the lost world of pre-war Romanian terrace cafés, this is a non-stop four-hour extravaganza of central European classical and folk music from ferocious Transylvanian fiddling to Janáček, Kodály and Brahms, interspersed with haunting Eastern European café songs.

Interpreting opera through visual art, The Water Sinks Down With Them is a new film and sound installation by Emma Critchley which was commissioned to accompany Opera North’s full cycles of Der Ring des Nibelungen. Taking the opening bars of Wagner’s Das Rheingold as its inspiration, the film is set in the Rhine, a timeless, unending yet ever changing cosmos which becomes an immersive metaphor for the evolution of life itself. The work will tour to Gateshead and to London’s Southbank Centre.

Long-term collaborations with the University of Leeds and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park continue in 2016/17 with pop-up performances, unexpected partnerships and provocative literary events including The Liberty Lectures, an annual talk series presented with the University of Leeds which is rapidly becoming established as one of the main literary series in the North of England. During Summer 2016, Opera North is also working closely with the Yorkshire Festival to present two weeks of sublime international music, The Songlines Series, in the Howard Assembly Room, featuring artists as diverse as the Congolese band Mbongwana Star, Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band, and Mali’s Rokia Traoré.

 

 Full mainstage repertoire 2016/17

Der Rosenkavalier REVIVAL
Richard Strauss (1911)
Sat 17 September (11 performances)
Sung in German with English titles

A much-loved classic opens Opera North’s 2016/17 season as David McVicar’s sumptuous production of Der Rosenkavalier returns to the stage.

Perfectly poised between comedy and pathos, Der Rosenkavalier contrasts the impulsive young love of Octavian and Sophie with the Marschallin’s acknowledgement of the passage of time. Although fearful that the 17-year-old Octavian will leave her for a younger woman, it is the Marschallin who orchestrates the first meeting between her lover and the beautiful Sophie – with inevitable consequences. Words and music seem to combine effortlessly, with the luxurious score giving full rein to Strauss’s particular favourite, the soprano voice.

The cast sees the welcome return of some of Opera North’s best-loved performers. Having mesmerised audiences in both the harrowing title role of Jenůfa last year and as Emilia Marty in The Makropulos Case (2012), Swedish soprano Ylva Kihlberg sings the bittersweet part of the Marschallin. She is joined by Helen Sherman as Octavian (Cherubino, The Marriage of Figaro (2015); Dorabella, Così fan tutte (2016)) and Fflur Wyn (Giannetta, L’elisir d’amore (2016); Servilia, La Clemenza di Tito (2013)) as Sophie.

Aleksandar Markovic conducts in his highly anticipated debut performance as Opera North’s new Music Director, following critical and audience acclaim for performances of Jenůfa in 2015.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Feldmarschallin Ylva Kihlberg Conductor Aleksandar Markovic
Octavian Helen Sherman Director David McVicar

Il tabarro/ Suor Angelica
Performed together Il tabarro and Suor Angelica provide an intense emotional exploration of the many vagaries of love: marital, adulterous, maternal and religious. Dutch maestro Jac van Steen (Peter Grimes (2013), La vida breve/Gianni Schicchi (2015), Così fan tutte (2016)) conducts both productions.

Il tabarro REVIVAL
Giacomo Puccini (1918)
Sat 1 October (10 performances), performed in a double-bill with Suor Angelica
Sung in Italian with English titles

It is Paris 1912 and we are in the poverty-stricken world of the city’s stevedores watching as Michele, a barge-owner, starts to question his wife’s loyalty. What follows is a dark exploration of betrayal and despair as Michele, consumed by jealousy, takes revenge for Giorgetta’s infidelity in a swift act of vengeance, shocking in both its suddenness and brutality.

Il tabarro is a noir-ish thriller which develops at a frightening pace. The characters move inexorably towards their fate as the mood darkens and the tension builds, and the simple yet atmospheric set design adds to the sense of claustrophobia which characterises the action. Add to this some highly innovative orchestral scene-setting, and you have the essence of Puccini in concentrated form.

This production was originally directed by David Pountney as part of Opera North’s award-winning ‘Eight Little Greats’ season of eight one-act operas in 2004. Michael Barker-Caven revives it with a dynamic cast which brings together Giselle Allen as Giorgetta and David Butt Philip, who was critically acclaimed for his touching portrayal of Laca Klemeň in Jenůfa (2015), as Luigi. Italian baritone Ivan Inverardi, a regular performer in many of Europe’s biggest opera houses, including Deutsche Oper and La Scala, Milan, makes his UK debut as Michele.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Michele Ivan Inverardi Conductor Jac van Steen
Giorgetta Giselle Allen Anthony Kraus
Luigi David Butt Philip (20 Oct; 2 Dec)
Director David Pountney
Revival Director Michael Barker-Caven
Set Designer Johan Engels
Costume Designer Tom Pye
Lighting Designer Mark Doubleday

 

Suor Angelica NEW
Giacomo Puccini (1918)
Sat 1 October (10 performances), performed in a double-bill with Il tabarro
Sung in Italian with English titles

Angelica has been confined to a convent by her wealthy family as punishment for giving birth to an illegitimate son. After seven years with no word, she is visited by her aunt – a princess – who tells her that the child died years ago, news which plunges Angelica into suicidal despair.

But although there is darkness at the heart of Suor Angelica, there is also light. Its miraculous ending is suffused with redemptive beauty and the opera has a musical character unique in Puccini’s output. It also features one of his greatest, and most moving, soprano arias, ‘Senza Mamma’.

Directed by Michael Barker-Caven who undertook a hugely successful revival of La bohème for the Company in 2014, this new production features French soprano Anne Sophie Duprels in the title role, a singer who has given unforgettable leading performances at Opera North in productions of Madama Butterfly (2011/12) and La vida breve (2015).

The role of the Principessa is taken by Irish mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon, whose international career highlights have included the role of Mary Magdalene in the world premiere staging of John Adams’s The Gospel According to the Other Mary (ENO, 2014) and Carmen in Los Angeles conducted by Placido Domingo.

To complement the unfolding tragedy, designer Hannah Clark (The Coronation of Poppea, 2014) creates a scene which is redolent of both ardent religious belief and decay.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Suor Angelica Anne Sophie Duprels Conductor Jac van Steen
Principessa Patricia Bardon Anthony Kraus
(20 Oct; 2 Dec)
Director Michael Barker-Caven
Set & Costume Designer Hannah Clark
Lighting Designer Mark Doubleday

 

 

Billy Budd NEW
Benjamin Britten (1951)
Tue 18 October (9 performances)
Sung in English

Billy Budd explores many of Britten’s recurrent themes with penetrating psychological insight: innocence corrupted, good destroyed by evil, and the outsider. It tells the tale of Billy, a young sailor who radiates beauty and goodness, provoking the envy of the ship’s Master at Arms, John Claggart. The one man who has it in his power to save Billy is the HMS Indomitable’s captain, Vere, who is haunted by his failure to do so.

For many, the power of Britten’s large-scale orchestral writing, the all-male forces, and the intensity with which he responds to the work’s subject matter make this his greatest operatic achievement.

This is the first time Opera North has staged Billy Budd in more than 20 years. Orpha Phelan directs a cast of leading Britten interpreters including Roderick Williams in the title role, Alan Oke as Vere and Alastair Miles as Claggart, the Master at Arms who helps seal Billy’s fate.

Scottish conductor Garry Walker, winner of the 1999 Leeds Conductors’ Competition and currently Artistic Director of Conducting at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, makes his Opera North debut.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Captain Vere Alan Oke Conductor Garry Walker
Billy Budd Roderick Williams Director Orpha Phelan

The Snow Maiden NEW
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1882)
Sat 21 January (9 performances)
Sung in English with English titles

The Snow Maiden is the daughter of Grandfather Frost and Spring Beauty. Beautiful and warm, her beguiling exterior hides a tragic secret: her heart is made of ice which will melt if she ever succumbs to the warmth of human love.

Written at one of the happiest times in his life, Rimsky-Korsakov described The Snow Maiden as ‘a spring fairy-tale’, creating an opera of sheer enchantment from this popular Russian tale, graced with some of the composer’s most spontaneously lyrical music.

Directed by John Fulljames, Associate Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House, this new production, believed to be the first professional staging in the UK in over 60 years, will make inventive use of video imagery to blend and contrast worlds of fantasy and modern day reality.

The adventurous staging is reflected in the cast, an exciting mix of Opera North regulars and talented newcomers conducted by Leo McFall, winner of the Deutsche Dirigentenpreis 2015. Casting includes Northern Irish soprano Aoife Miskelly who makes her Opera North debut as the Snow Maiden. Aoife’s most recent roles have included Despina in Così fan tutte, Papagena in The Magic Flute, Gilda in Rigoletto, and Frasquita in Carmen, all for Cologne Opera.

Bonaventura Bottone who last appeared at Opera North as Nick in The Girl of the Golden West (2014) returns to sing Tsar Berendey and Yvonne Howard performs Spring Beauty, following her most recent Opera North performances as Fricka in The Ring (2016). Mezzo Heather Lowe sings Lel, while young New Zealand baritone Phillip Rhodes is Mizgir.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

The Snow Maiden Aoife Miskelly Conductor Leo McFall
Tsar Berendey Bonaventura Bottone Director John Fulljames
Grandfather Frost James Creswell Set Designer Giles Cadle
Spring Beauty Yvonne Howard Costume Designer Christina Cunningham

Hansel and Gretel NEW
Engelbert Humperdinck (1893)
Thu 2 February (18 performances including five Schools’ Matinees)
Sung in English with English titles

This is a darkly compelling version of the Brothers Grimm story of growing up and surviving childhood. In a chilling twist, the witch is also the children’s mother: they have to kill her before she kills them. Hansel and Gretel is perhaps the best-loved of all the operatic fairy tales but, in director Edward Dick’s production, it is also one of the most unsettling.

The action on stage includes hand-held cameras and live video; set against this modern technology is an unending thread of golden melody, including the dizzying excitement of the ‘Witch’s Ride’ and the serene beauty of the children’s ‘Evening Prayer’. The music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story, from the daily struggle for survival of an impoverished family, to the world of the forest, both idyllic and full of danger.

Susan Bullock CBE takes the formidable role of the Witch and children’s mother, Gertrud, in her first Opera North appearance since singing the title role in Elektra in 2008. Of her most distinctive roles, Wagner’s Brünnhilde has garnered outstanding praise leading her to become the first ever soprano to sing four consecutive cycles of Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Royal Opera House in 2012, while most recently she has been seen in Houston as Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd.

Two young British opera singers whose careers Opera North has been instrumental in developing over the years take on the roles of Hansel and Gretel. Mezzo-soprano Katie Bray, who charmed audiences as Rosina in last year’s production of The Barber of Seville, sings Hansel, while Gretel is soprano Fflur Wyn, fresh from her performance as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Hansel Katie Bray Conductor Christoph Altstaedt
Gretel Fflur Wyn Justin Doyle
Gertrud/Witch Susan Bullock (4, 11, 18, 22, 23, 25 Mar)

Cinderella NEW
(La Cenerentola)
Gioachino Rossini (1817)
Thu 16 February (13 performances)
Sung in Italian with English titles

Forget fairy godmothers, pumpkins and glass slippers, Rossini’s version of Cinderella (La Cenerentola) is an unabashedly romantic comedy but without any of the usual trappings associated with this much-loved fairy tale.

Rossini was celebrated in his day for serious as well as comic operas and, in Cinderella, he combines his genius for both. Bringing Rossini’s comic characters to life in this lively production are Quirijn de Lang (Fred Graham, Kiss Me, Kate; Count Almaviva, The Marriage of Figaro, both 2015) who sings the Prince’s servant Dandini, and Henry Waddington (Bartolo, The Marriage of Figaro, 2015) as Cinderella’s stepfather, Don Magnifico.

While this pair are undoubtedly some of Rossini’s finest comic creations, Angelina and her prince Ramiro eschew comedy for romance, as Cinderella’s transformation into a queen-in-waiting is achieved not through magic but through the power of music. Two fast-rising international artists make their Opera North and UK debuts: Canadian mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta sings Angelina, while South African tenor Sunnyboy Dladla is Don Ramiro.

Aletta Collins, whose recent work for Opera North includes The Girl of the Golden West (2014), La voix humaine (2013), and Dido and Aeneas (2013), directs this fresh and witty take on the opera, in a production with dance woven into its very fabric.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Angelina (Cinderella) Wallis Giunta Conductor Wyn Davies
Don Ramiro Sunnyboy Dladla /David Cowan
Dandini Quirijn de Lang (25 Feb, 2, 4 Mar)
Don Magnifico Henry Waddington Director Aletta Collins

Turandot NEW
Giacomo Puccini (1926) Concert staging
Fri 28 April (6 performances)
Sung in Italian with English titles

Ancient Beijing. Princess Turandot decrees that she will marry the prince who can solve three riddles. Those who fail are put to death. Many accept the challenge; none survives the attempt. But when Prince Calaf arrives at the palace, so dazzled is he by Turandot’s beauty that he is determined to have her, despite the pleas of the slave girl Liù, who is secretly and selflessly in love with him.

The scale of Puccini’s musical invention in Turandot is stupendous, including music of overwhelming power. The opera contains many memorable arias from the tender appeal of the Liù to the Prince ‘Signore, ascolta’, to Turandot’s defiant showpiece aria ‘In questa reggia’. It also features one of the most famous arias of all, ‘Nessun dorma’, sung as Calaf anticipates winning the Princess’s hand.

Music director Aleksandar Markovic conducts Opera North’s new concert staging of Turandot, which will be held in Leeds Town Hall before touring to concert halls in England and Scotland.

Tenor Rafael Rojas sings the role of Calaf, returning to Opera North following widespread acclaim in the title role of Andrea Chénier in 2016, Irish soprano Orla Boylan sings Turandot, while Liù is sung by South Korean soprano Sunyoung Seo, making her Opera North and UK debut.

Cast and Creative Team includes:

Turandot Orla Boylan Conductor Aleksandar Markovic
Calaf Rafael Rojas
Timur Alastair Miles
Emperor Altoum Bonaventura Bottone
Liù Sunyoung Seo
Ping Gavan Ring
