A co-production between Helios Collective, Buxton Festival and Copenhagen Opera Festival
Following their happy success at the 2016 Buxton Festival and the Copenhagen Opera Festival with Hathaway, the ever-inventive Helios Collective return with a performance of their new touring programme, Il Letto. This is the second in their development of an intriguing series, marrying specially created narrative text with some of the best known Puccini arias. Giacomo Puccini was rarely out of love with many of the women coming in and out of his life, giving rise to the premise that much in his heroines’ music was inspired by his emotional involvements. Helios Collective’s brand is infectiously inviting, providing food for thought with accessibility and lively commitment to the dramatic arts in all forms.
