ENO’s new season? A national betrayal, says Rupert…main
Some 88 percent of singers and conductors at English National Opera next season are either British, British trained or UK resident. It says so in the press package.
But 88% is not enough for Rupert Christiansen in the Daily Telegraph, fulminating here of treason.
We were particularly struck by the Triastan and Isolde cast, which has a Skeltonand a Melton; a Cargill and a Colclough not to mention an English Rose. Must be fun being an ENO casting director.
Anish Kapoor designs a new production of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, directed by Daniel Kramer with Stuart Skelton and Heidi Melton in the title roles and British bass Matthew Rose as King Mark
