The Opera Hour – series 2/episode 1

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes. In today’s Opera Hour we talk to opera director Ted Huffman, who is currently directing English Touring Opera’s production of Peter Maxwell Davies’ opera The Lighthouse, which relates the mysterious events of boxing day 1900 when 3 lighthouse keepers vanished without a trace; and we’ll also be looking at ghosts and fevered imaginings in Britten’s terrifying ghost opera The Turn of the Screw.’
