The Opera Hour – series 2/episode 4

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes – politics, power, greed, the abominable, magic, lust, comedy.
In this week’s show we talk to opera director Netia Jones about her upcoming productions of Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pipplety Pop, Knussen’s two fantasy operas, at the Barbican. And we’ll be hearing extraordinary excerpts from both the Knussen operas as well as highlights from some other childishly fantastical opera scores!
