Just in: John Adams gets a London premiere next monthmain
English National Opera will stage John Adams’ El Niño at the London Coliseum on November 27 and 28.
Singers include Nardus Williams, Jennifer Johnston, James Rutherford and three countertenors Jake Arditti, Tom Scott-Cowell and Feargal Mostyn-Williams, along with the Finchley Children’s Music Group. Martin Brabbins conducts.
El Niño was premiered 20 years ago in Paris by Dawn Upshaw, Lorraine Hunt Lieberson and Willard White, but has never matched the impact of Adams’s major operas.
