Notes

The packed audience at The Old Market clearly enjoyed themselves. Many having come in pirate garb, they joined enthusiastically in the final chorus, dancing in the aisles. A cut above many other family operas… Captain Blood certainly deserves a future.

Tuesday 28th May 2013, Graham Rogers, The Stage

Commissioned by Glyndebourne.

NOMINATED FOR A BRITISH COMPOSERS AWARD IN 2014.

The audience become part of the story in this unique and magical work for the whole family. This is a mischievous, fun-filled introduction to the world of opera that combines slapstick humour with moments of operatic high drama. Larger-than-life characters, witty spoken dialogue, audience interaction and full-blooded opera singing combine to explore the universal story of a young family pulling together in stormy seas.
