We’re very pleased to be working with composer Keith Burstein on a PR campaign ahead of the world premiere of his new work The Prometheus Revolution, performed as part of the Grimeborn Opera Festival 2018 (Arcola Theatre).

Keith Burstein was born in Brighton to a musical family; both his parents were classical violinists who played for Sadlers Wells Ballet, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Ulster Orchestra, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and the Hallé Orchestra.

Burstein held two scholarships at the Royal College of Music in London where he studied composition with Bernard Stevens and John Lambert. Post-graduation, he continued his composition studies with Jonathan Harvey. Between 1983 and 1991, Burstein led contemporary music ensemble the Grosvenor Group. He has since won the very active support of major mentors to him, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Arvo Pärt.

Described by The Telegraph as “an ardent new romantic post-modernist”, Burstein composes uniquely tonal music, reflecting his optimism for the future of humanity. His controversial views on modern contemporary music have earned him notoriety amongst his contemporaries, having stated previously that “tonality is the universal alphabet of music”.

Burstein’s opera Manifest Destiny premiered in 2004 in London, garnering controversy for its handling of the topic of Middle Eastern suicide bombers renouncing violence.

The Prometheus Revolution has been inspired in part by the 2012 Occupy movement’s “99% vs the 1%” ideology, and with a focus on peace and disarmament, will commemorate the centenary year of the end of World War I.

Set in the near future, the opera opens with the UK in meltdown in the aftermath of the fascistic Prime Minister and his wife taking poison, soon replaced by another shadowy authority figure. When two trillion pounds go missing from the City of London, the army is poised to take control of the anticipated mayhem.

Presented by Fulham Opera, performances will be on the 7, 8 and 10 of August, and tickets can be purchased from the Grimeborn website. Keith has completed a commission for the London Chamber Orchestra which will be premiered in their 2019-2020 season.

We are delighted that tickets for Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2018 are now on sale and the programme is as daring and “scream-worthy” as ever.

“The Modern Prometheus” theme extends into the festival with more of a Black Mirror edge, following Tête à Tête’s collaboration with Royal College of Music earlier this year: WEAR is an immersive opera about time travel, high fashion, ecological disaster and love, taking place in The Crossing at King’s Cross; NIBIRU!, a concept album about the apocalypse, social networking and conspiracy theories; Vicky & Albert is the story of an app, which convinces people that the user has a boyfriend…

In what promises to be both hilarious and thought-provoking, audiences are given an insight into the trials and tribulations of being two and three quarters, with a double bill of two operas: I Do Need Me explores the intensity of emotion that small children experience; I’m Not A Bit Like A Clown is a playful work that captures the joy and freewheeling energy of a toddler, whilst exploring and exploding our received ideas of gender, offering a delightful child’s eye view of the world.

More opera, this time for children the story of a fossilised hippo from 250,000 years ago, involving an interactive workshop and opera, The Lost Box of Stories, presenting new music and storytelling with Mid Wales Music Trust.

Tête à Tête welcomes its first Artist-in-Residence, with Li-E Chen’s Proposition for a Silent Opera at an Invisible Museum – I am a museum, a development of the 2017 work that encompasses an art exhibition in the foyer of The Place between 16th – 18th August, plus performances throughout the week.

Cubitt Sessions open the festival again this year, offering free servings of opera for the King’s Cross area with BISHI, Errollyn Wallen, Juice Vocal Ensemble, plus Aubergine from Muziektheater Transparent, and Tête à Tête’s very own operatic disaster, TOSCATASTROPHE!

As always, taking a journey through the past with new opera eyes on, Mary’s Hand is an immersive, biographical take on Mary “Bloody Mary” Tudor (featuring playing cards); Love Me To Death is based upon Ruth Ellis, the last woman hanged in Britain, plus a new collaboration with the Wellcome Collection for Dear Mary Stopes, a story told through letters, responding to her controversial sex manual ‘Married Love’.

This year’s festivals offers operatic treats, both reflective and pioneering, from both long-standing Tête à Tête alumni and new companies and artists. With a focus on Artist Development and support, with the “For Artists” hub on the website, the company continues to provide more opportunities for artists worldwide.

Tickets are now on sale! Where tickets are required we recommend booking early for the best price online at tete-a-tete.org.uk. Early Bird Online until 10th July £5.00 /  In Advance Online £7.50 / In Person, On Phone, On The Door at the venue £9.50. Lots of shows are free so just turn up and enjoy!

Today, it launches its English-language site francemusique.com!

London Director, Olivia Brown, says: “There are a number of reasons why we are so delighted to be working with Radio France’s France Musique to promote this project, though first and foremost to share this content-rich platform worldwide. Radio stations have obviously been focusing on digital content to complement their stations more and more in the past few years, and this new platform not only demonstrates how Radio France is providing its current audiences in France with new, accessible, and informative content, but also welcoming an international audience to enjoy its platform too. Our company expansion to Paris in the next year only adds to the excitement of this project and we hope you enjoy exploring and learning!”

Its seven themed radio stations include ‘Easy Classical’, ‘Classical Extra’, ‘Jazz’, ‘Radio France Concerts’, Radio France’s own record label ‘Ocora World Music’, ‘Contemporary’ and ‘Film Music’.

Offering both Musical Knowledge and Practical Knowledge, the platform hosts a wide and growing variety of articles on the history of classical and jazz music, the chance to learn more about the context of different works, biographies of composers and musicians, curated playlists, and accessible content so anyone and everyone can learn and discover, whilst also having fun!

The Live Concerts section offers an ever-expanding catalogue of audio-visual concerts, accessible for free. As for the Studio Sessions, these allow access to unique sessions recorded at France Musique with both rising stars and established artists.

The database includes performances by France’s top ensembles, including the National Orchestra of France, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France, and the Choir and Children’s Choir of Radio France, putting you right on the front row.
