Stéphane Lissner has rolled out an original season for 2016/17, with 11 new opera productions including one world premiere, a co-pro with London’s Royal College of Music, Britten’s little-seen Owen Wyngrave, Pretty Yende as Lucia di Lammermoor, one conductor under 30, and much else.

See the full list on forumopera. Almost all seats cheaper than Covent Garden. Book your Eurostars now.



  • Petros LInardos says:

    Why is it news that there is one conductor under 30?

    • DAVID says:

      Because we’re obsessed with youth and image, at the expense of substance and genuine musicianship/artistry. Older just doesn’t look good and doesn’t sell well, especially when audiences are increasingly lacking musical judgment and education.

  • Theodore McGuiver says:

    I wonder how many of them Lissner would recognise if they were played to him.
