Following their residency in Leeds with Opera North, the Young Artists return to London to present The Fatal Gaze, devised by Tim Albery and Nicholas Kok, directed by Tim Albery.

From Monteverdi to Handel to modern musicals, the Fatal Gaze, fortunate or disastrous, has always been with us. Love at first sight for Cinderella; lecherous men ogling Susanna as she bathes; Jephte promising, in return for victory, to sacrifice the first person he sees; Orfeo looking back at Eurydice, as he leads her from the Underworld. Stories of the capriciousness of the Gods as they rule over human fate, told through music of great sadness and infectious joy.

Premium tickets are available for this performance at £30, which includes a post-concert wine reception where you have the opportunity to meet the Young Artists and National Opera Studio team.

The National Opera Studio is a world leader in opera training. Based in London, the National Opera Studio provides nine months of intensive training to singers and répétiteurs who have the potential to become the leading artists of their generation.
