Britten: Death in Venice

Royal Opera House, London

21 November – 6 December 2019

If you’ve seen Visconti’s classic movie Death in Venice, the images will have burnt themselves into your memory. Britten’s operatic version takes a different, but no less haunting approach: probing the mind and disintegrating the soul of a great artist in music of troubling but unforgettable beauty. The Royal Opera always does Britten well, and the names attached to this new production – director David McVicar, baritone Gerald Finley, and Mark Padmore as the doomed writer Aschenbach – promise something very special indeed.
