Will (Guglielmo): Così The Remake – Workshop @ Broad Street, Birmingham
Apr 1 – Apr 5 all-day

Cosi Fan Tutte – The Remake

With a brand-new re-composition of the original score by Luca Tieppo and a compelling new drama and libretto by Becca Marriott and Iskandar Sharazuddin, Così Fan Tutte – The Remake (or Così Fan Tutti) will make audiences see the archetypes of Mozart’s opera in a new light. In a faithful attempt to combine the original material with modernity, this production will position itself at the heart of the current debate on gender politics.

Luca Tieppo, composer, says:

Modern adaptations of well-known operas usually intervene on the staging only (and sometimes on the libretto) but leave the original music score untouched. I’ve always thought this creates a sense of alienation between the dramatic performance and the musical landscape, which remains frozen in a specific time regardless of how the libretto is adapted. I would like to try a different way, that of the Remake – to create a fresh, coherent production where not only staging and libretto are intimately connected, but also the music is moulded by using different stylistic and vocal approaches that combine the source material with contemporaneity.

Selections from the Remake will be performed after a weeklong workshop in the first week of April.
Kieran will be playing the role of Will (Guglielmo).

Prince of Mantua: Offenbach, Fantasio (Garsington Opera First) @ Wormsley Estate
Jul 10 @ 6:00 pm

Kieran will perform the lead baritone role (and villain!) of The Prince of Mantua in Offenbach’s Fantasio for Garsington’s Opera First event.

Fantasio is a melancholy, moon-struck dreamer who yearns after an unreachable princess. Can he win her over with his disguise as her beloved jester and fulfil his promise to prevent her arranged marriage to the prince? Secret encounters and mistaken identities are eventually, and sometimes unexpectedly, resolved.

Offenbach was known for his witty and catchy melodies, poking fun at the establishment in tuneful scores of dazzling charm. Celebrating the composer’s bicentenary in 2019, we present the UK stage premiere of this enchanting and gently poignant opera in a specially commissioned new English translation by Jeremy Sams.

We welcome Hanna Hipp (Capriccio, 2018) in the title role, Jennifer France (Le nozze di Figaro, 2017) as Princess Elsbeth and director Martin Duncan (Il turco in Italia, 2017) with conductor Justin Doyle making his Garsington debut.
