17 June: TERRY GILLIAM’S BENVENUTO CELLINI
Monty Python legend Terry Gilliam unleashes his inexhaustible imagination on Berlioz’s dazzling opera Benvenuto Cellini. Following on from his award-winning production of The Damnation of Faust, Gilliam now takes on this extraordinary tale of the infamous 16th-century goldsmith and sculptor Benvenuto Cellini.
With its stunning visual and musical set pieces, Berlioz’s opera is based on the sculptor’s autobiography and tells a story of thwarted love, elopement, intrigue, disguise and mistaken identity. Featuring some of Berlioz’s most vibrant and tender music, the production will be conducted by ENO’s Music Director Edward Gardner. Michael Spyres sings the title role, with stunning soprano Corinne Winters playing Cellini’s lover and distinguished bass Willard White playing Pope Clement VII.
