The Opera Festival, Tête à Tête
London, August 2018
Director: Bill Banks-Jones
Musical director/Orchestra: Tim Burke
Designer and Dressmaker: Sylvia Spyratou
A production of Tête à Tête, a hilarious nightmare evening as we massacre another classic, Tosca by Puccini. Burke creates another lousy orchestration to perform with totally inept Bill Bankes-Jones. A shambolic production where stellar singers Gweneth-Anne Rand (Tosca), Ronald Samm (Cavaradossi) and Keel Watson (Scarpia) do their best to survive the mayhem.
