There have been crucial cheers throughout the board – 5 stars within the Occasions, 4 within the Telegraph – for Scottish Opera’s revival of Osvaldo Golijov’s uncared for opera Ainadamar.
It’d effectively be the UK’s greatest up to date opera of the yr.
However how did it come about?
The hand behind the enterprise is John Berry’s. John’s fundraising organisation Opera Ventures has beforehand organised productions of Mark Turnage’s Greek and Missy Mazzoli’s Breaking The Waves in Scotland.
John is former chief government of English Nationwide Opera. He has worldwide backers.
ENO is floundering.
John Berry’s independently financed operas are flourishing.
Classes to be realized?
Not in London, apparently.
