Background


A mythical giant leads a team of lumberjacks to create their dreams of a new world.


English National Opera visit Wilton's Music Hall for the first time with their first ever staging of Paul Bunyan, Britten's retelling of the legend of the eponymous giant, as part of its ENO Studio Live series.


ENO Studio Live presents the immense power of opera in intimate theatre environments while celebrating incredible emerging and established UK talents.


The production will be directed by Jamie Manton, having directed the inaugural ENO Studio Live production, Jonathan Dove's The Day After, with 'impressive conviction' (The Guardian).


The production also features designs by Camilla Clarke, a winner of the 2015 Linbury Prize for Stage Design, who most recently designed Bad Roads at the Royal Court Theatre.


It will be conducted by ENO Charles Mackerras Conducting Fellow Matthew Kofi Waldren who has assisted on productions of Don Giovanni and The Barber of Seville, and will conduct a performance of The Marriage of Figaro at the London Coliseum in April 2018.


Performed by arrangement with Faber Music Ltd, London.
