PREVIEW: Crime & Punishment, Tête à Tête @Royal College of Music

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:
