TANTRUMS AND TIARAS Nigel Bates Monday 16 March 2020

This lecture, by the Music Administrator for The Royal Ballet, takes a look at life backstage at London’s Royal Opera House and the tribulations and triumphs of working with The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet companies. It looks at the way artistic inspirations, the people involved, and the very special Victorian building all function together to create world-class opera and ballet in a unique environment.
