BBC Proms: ENO at Printworks with Anthony Roth Costanzo

29th April 2022 in News

English National Opera will be returning to the BBC Proms with Grammy-Award winner Anthony Roth Costanzo.

For the first time, a Prom will be hosted at South London’s magnificent industrial events space, Printworks. Trailblazing American counter-tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo will present an operatic spectacle contrasting Handel with Philip Glass, and weaving in dance, live painting, music videos and audio soundscapes.

The spectacular space of Printworks London – printing plant turned club venue – hosts an immersive reimagining of counter-tenor Anthony Roth Costanzo’s album ARC, in a genre-defying Proms production featuring live painting by George Condo, soundscapes by Jason Singh, costumes by Raf Simons, choreography by Justin Peck and music by Handel and Philip Glass, who has composed a world premiere.

The Prom will include:

Philip Glass No More, You Petty Spirits
Handel Tolomeo; Flavio; Rinaldo; Rodelinda; Amadigi
