Tomato’s decline and fall

Music & Words: Yiannis Maramathas

 

Hear six brand-new operas created by RCM composers and performed by RCM singers working in partnership with pioneering opera company Tête à Tête.

 

Inspired by Evelyn Waugh’s novel Decline and Fall, our six artistic teams whirl audiences through a hereditary curse through the female line, a doomed cruise ship, a series of fencing matches with a twist, the failings of a posthumously successful author, the lunatics taking over the asylum and a tomato who is doomed to rot.

 

Produced by the Royal College of Music in association with Tête à Tête
