BREMF Early Opera

BREMF is at the forefront of training for young artists in the unique performance practice needed to bring early operatic works to life.

Our 2021 opera training course 28 June – 12 July will focus on Francesca Caccini’s La liberazione di Ruggiero (1625) directed by Thomas Guthrie.

Deadline for audition submissions 15 January 2021. Click here to find out more.

Who makes up the opera team

Our projects bring singers and instrumentalists together to work on the skills needed for this repertoire, which are specific and very different to later operatic techniques.

Working with a team led by Deborah Roberts (BREMF Artistic Director), Oliver Webber (violinist and historical performance expert) and Thomas Guthrie (stage director), productions have included Monteverdi’s Orfeo (2017), Blow’s Venus and Adonis (2018) and Marco da Gagliano’s La Dafne (2020).
