Escape into a fantastical world

Overview

With Jonathan Dove’s spellbinding chamber opera in this online production which was created during the 2021 lockdown.

The production has been transformed from the physical to the digital stage, with the creative team and artists from across the School bringing the productions to life from their homes.

Written in 1994 for the Batignano Opera Festival, The Little Green Swallow is adapted from Carlo Gozzi’s 1765 fable of the same name, L’augellino belverde. In the composer’s own words, it is a “tale of intrigue and magic, journeys and dangerous quests, satirical philosophy, encounters with singing statues, and a little green bird”.

Guildhall School premiered Adam Pollock’s English translation of The Little Green Swallow in June 2005 with a production conducted by Dominic Wheeler, directed by Martin Lloyd-Evans and designed by Dick Bird. The trio reunite for this new online version of the opera, bringing Dove’s enchanting work back to audiences once more.
