About British Youth Opera
British Youth Opera celebrates its 25th anniversary with two new productions in association with Southbank Sinfonia, bursting with talent from the next generation of opera professionals selected through nationwide auditions from over 400 singers.
Smetana's comic masterpiece, inspired by folk tales from his native Bohemia, tells of The Bartered Bride whose arranged marriage is thwarted by her true love's cunning. An opera of in-laws, secret identities and circuses, its inventiveness and humour have made The Bartered Bride an audience favourite.
A Night at the Chinese Opera is a colourful depiction of China in the time of Kublai Khan, Marco Polo and the ‘Orphan of Zhao', whose tragic tale of military invasion and personal vendetta is mirrored by Judith Weir's theatrically turbocharged comic-opera-within-an-opera.
"The most remarkable first full-length opera to have reached the British public in at least a decade. On no account to be missed wherever it turns up" FINANCIAL TIMES on A Night at the Chinese Opera.
