Beginnings: New and Early Opera Tickets

Guildhall Opera department presents a feast of five contrasting short operatic works

Review this show


Three new chamber operas and two early pieces from the Baroque era – broadcast online for free.

First broadcast online by Guildhall in condensed virtual form during the 2020 lockdown, three new works receive their fully staged, orchestral premiere The Apothecary; I’m Cleaning, I’m Cleaning and Eintänzer. These imaginative chamber operas – taking audiences from 18th-century Paris to 1980s Soviet Russia via a Weimar-era nightclub – are written by composers and librettists on Guildhall School’s innovative MA in Opera Making & Writing programme, delivered in association with the Royal Opera House.

This swift-moving quintuple bill also offers the chance to enjoy two rarely performed, short 17th-century works by two of the greatest Baroque composers. Charpentier’s cantata Orphée descendant aux enfers for three male voices is presented alongside the first staged performance of Judicium Salomonis – a secular oratorio by Carissimi.
