Mike Leigh & David Parry

Mike Leigh & David Parry

Mike Leigh, the revered British director behind the likes of Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake and last year's Mr Turner, talks to Sean Rafferty about his exciting new venture in to the world of opera with a brand new ENO production of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic Pirates of Penzance. Joined by the opera's conductor David Parry, Leigh talks about how he was finally convinced to make an opera, his love of Gilbert and Sullivan, and the daring act of going for an entirely straight and authentic production, in tribute to what he sees as the genius of the two men.
