20th Century British Opera Double-Feature

NYC Opera put out this trailer for the first two operas in their reduced, traveling 2013 season, their second season since leaving their long-time home at Lincoln Center due to monetary woes…  I think it’s a fun pairing, with Thomas Adès‘ first opera, Powder her Face (complementing the Met‘s earlier presentation of his Tempest), and Benjamin Britten‘s ghost story chamber opera The Turn of the Screw (which I have featured before in all its full-length glory).

In addition to the directors talking about their ideas and themes and whatever, you can also see stage design maquettes!  always fun…
