Peter Grimes 24 June 4.30-5.30pm
Join ROH for the launch of Design Challenge 2021/22, as talented young creators across the country are set the challenge of producing designs for the opera Peter Grimes.
This launch event, hosted by stage director Tom Guthrie and designer Ruth Paton, will introduce this year’s challenge, based on Benjamin Britten’s sombre opera about a fisherman ostracised by his community. With a backdrop of stirring music, Peter Grimes brings to the fore some complex themes and offers plenty of material to inspire students’ creativity.
During the event, Ruth and Tom will set the ‘live’ brief and unpick the ‘Director’s Visions’ that students will use as the stimulus for their designs.
