Degout and Devieilhe star in Hamlet revival

Sabine Devieilhe (Ophélie) and Stéphane Degout (Hamlet) © Vincent Pontet

Lessons in Love and Violence: ice and drama

Barbara Hannigan (Isabel), Stéphane Degout (King), Gyula Orendt (Gaveston) © ROH | Stephen Cummiskey
George Benjamin and Martin Crimp's second full scale opera is a refinement of the craft showed in Written on Skin – but the lessons are less in love and violince than in power, tension and beauty of the score.

Boesmans' dark Pinocchio opens Aix Festival

If I wrote that I loved Philippe Boesmans' Pinocchio, my nose may grow a little. The 81-year old composer in collaboration with Joël Pommerat, shifts the tale far away from any cutesy Disney fantasy, returning it to the harsh reality of Carlo Collodi's original fable.
