Guildhall School composers, librettists and musicians present three brand-new short operas: BlindGenizah and Grace.

Performed by singers and repetiteurs from the first year of the Guildhall Opera Course, Opera Makers features new music written by composers and librettists on Guildhall’s MA in Opera Making & Writing: an innovative programme delivered in association with the Royal Opera House.

The three new opera works – written especially for and developed with the singers – will be performed with a small orchestral ensemble, linked by well-known scenes from operas including Ariadne auf Naxos, Die Fledermaus and Hamlet accompanied by piano.

Creative Team:

Dominic Wheeler - conductor, Ashley Dean - director


Blind: Bahaa Ansary - composer, Monika Dalach - librettist

Genizah: Richard Melkonian - composer, Yashka Moore - librettist

Grace: Maeve McCarthy - composer, Sophie Rashbrook - librettist
