Tête à Tête is delighted to be working once again with Second Movement on Rough for Opera #15, a scratch night for new opera.

 

Particularly suited to new work receiving a first test performance and to showings of work in development, this has become an essential platform for some of Tête à Tête’s breaking artists.

 

An important part of each rough for opera is for participants to receive feedback about their work at an early stage in its development. This is obtained in two ways: through audience feedback forms and through the Q&A after each performance. These will be chaired by Professor Paul Barker from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

 

The first rough for opera was in October 2011. Since then it has platformed more than 40 new operas and operas in development. You can find further information about all past events, participants and works programmed on the Second Movement website.
