Tête à Tête will present six mini operas based on Dostoyevsky’s Crime & Punishment tonight and tomorrow at the Royal College of Music.
The six mini operas created and performed by members of the Royal College of Music in collaboration with Tête à Tête are being performed to mark the 150th year since Dostoyevsky’s novel was published.
All of the diverse operas will be conducted by Lionel Friend, directed by Bill Bankes-Jones and designed by Sarah Booth.
Each of the operas will cover many of the themes from Crime & Punishment, while interpreting them in different ways. There will be Scottish folktales, stories from the Apocrypha, presidential decisions based on the novel, revenge in post-war Germany and a video game that commits murder.
As well as a chance to see the world of opera’s future talent, it is a chance to see them in the atmospheric and grand setting of the Royal College of Music .
Crime & Punishment will perform tonight and tomorrow at the Royal College of Music. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.tete-a-tete.org.uk/crime-and-punishment/.
