24th November 2021 in News

ENO in the Fields – a new partnership between ENO and St Martin in the Fields was announced today.

The partnership takes the form of a new series of both evening and lunchtime concerts which demonstrate both ENO’s and St Martin’s commitment to supporting new musical talent.

Past and present ENO Harewood Artists (ENO’s programme for the next generation of operatic talent) and ENO Mackerras Fellow (emerging conductors) will be placed centre stage alongside the ENO’s award-winning Chorus and Orchestra.

There will also be some guest appearances for some evening performances from regular ENO visiting artists. The series will feature a broad range of repertoire and artists, with a particular focus on underrepresented composers, in line with ENO’s mission that opera is for everyone and to create new experiences that inspire, nurture creativity and make a difference.

ENO in the Fields forms part of a wider announcement from St. Martin in the Fields for their Spring programme.

Chris Denton, Chief Executive of St Martin-in-the-Fields, said:
“With a wonderful range of prestigious ensembles, innovative collaborations and important new partnerships, these concerts confirm St Martin-in-the Fields’ position as one of London’s key destinations for outstanding classical music and play to the strengths of our beautiful acoustic and architecture.”
