The Opera Hour – series 2/episode 2

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes – politics, power, greed, the abominable, magic, lust, comedy. On The Opera Hour this week we will be joined by Glyndebourne’s Young Composer in Residence, Luke Styles, who’ll be telling us about his upcoming operas and his experiences at Glyndebourne. We’ll also be hearing some live singing from his new opera Lover’s Walk, which has its premier in a few weeks time and Luke will be talking about some of his favourite ever music from Wagner to Purcell to Eddie Vedder.’
