Fasten your seatbelt and prepare for take-off with our new Theatre’s inaugural production: Jonathan Dove’s Flight. After his romping success with Offenbach’s Orphée aux enfers, Royal Academy Opera is delighted to welcome back director Martin Duncan, with designs by Francis O’Connor. This iconic score, which has found worldwide acclaim since its 1998 Glyndebourne Tour premiere, brilliantly sets the rich libretto by April De Angelis with the themes explored as relevant now as they were 20 years ago. The production is conducted by Director of Opera Gareth Hancock, who worked on the original Richard Jones production.
