Opera in the concert hall - December 2008

Opera in the concert hall - December 2008

The London Philharmonic Orchestra is familiar with opera, spending up to 4 months each year as the resident orchestra at Glyndebourne Festival Opera. What happens if you release the orchestra from the pit, and place them centre stage at the Royal Festival Hall for concert performances of opera? Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski talks to Edward Seckerson about the importance of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde, and Opera Rara's David Parry uncovers hidden gems of the operatic repertoire by Donizetti and Rossini.
