Tête à Tête 2016 Appeal

 
To make a really great job of our tenth Festival, we have pushed it forward into 2017, our 20th year. In the meantime, we are mounting a series of co-productions and events throughout 2016 which urgently need your help.

The programme begins 9-10 April with Devoted & Disgruntled: how can we change opera for the better?, a big discussion forum we have co-organised with Improbable and ENO.

A month later, we premiere another programme of six short operas in conjunction with the Royal College of Music inspired by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment.

We’re looking at a similar level of activity through the year, more co-productions and events including a six-week revival of one of the hits of last year’s festival. We also have a very grand plan to create a new website so that our existing archive of 400 videos (already watched by ¾ million people in 144 nations) can form the kernel of a much bigger community where anyone anywhere can post a video of a new opera.

As from the beginning 20 years ago, Tête à Tête has always been lean and lithe, making a little money go a very long way for a great many artists, most at the beginning of their careers. But right now, we really need that little financial push to make a programme with real thrust and impact. Do help if you can.

I am not familiar with opera, but I loved the content. It surprised me by having poetry and grandeur and I did not expect that with modern music.
