Intermusica artists Susan Bickley and Anthony Gregory star in Richard Jones’ new production of Julietta for English National Opera, which opens on September 17th. Based on a 1930s French surrealist play set in a poetical no-man’s-land poised between dreams and reality, Julietta is the operatic masterpiece of Martinů, the finest Czech composer in the generation following Janáček.
A regular guest of ENO, Susan Bickley was most recently heard there as Anne in Nico Muhly's new opera Two Boys and as Kabanicha in the acclaimed production of Káťa Kabanová. The rising young tenor Anthony Gregory makes his debut with the company as the Young Sailor.
Further performances are scheduled on September 22nd, 27th, 29th and October 2nd, 3rd.
