Benjamin Britten

Paul Bunyan

ENO's Olivier Award-nominated production will receive its first revival at the Alexandra Palace Theatre.

09 May - 13 May 2019

Following its sell-out run at Wilton’s Music Hall in 2018, ENO will again perform the Olivier Award-nominated Paul Bunyan, Britten’s retelling of the legend of the eponymous giant.

As part of ENO’s Studio Live series, we present the immense power of opera in intimate theatre environments while celebrating emerging and established UK talents.

Director Jamie Manton’s five-star production explores dreams, and the nature of civilisation and its impact on the ecology of the world we inhabit.

The production features designs by Camilla Clarke, a winner of the 2015 Linbury Prize for Stage Design, lighting by Marc Rosette, and choreography by Jasmine Ricketts. It will be conducted by ENO’s chorus master, James Henshaw.

ENO Harewood Artists Elgan Llŷr Thomas and Rowan Pierce reprise their roles as Johnny Inkslinger and Tiny respectively, alongside the ENO Chorus, who have been nominated for an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for their work in this production.

Simon Russell Beale will again provide the offstage recorded voice of the titular giant.
