Post subject:  Fantasy and SF on stage

The Signalman & other ghost stories from the minds of Charles Dickens & M R James is halfway through its tour but does't get south of Manchester now.

Finnish mythology's Kalevala has been plundered in SF and fantasy and now in an opera.

Quote:
Talented duo, composer Jonathan Dove and librettist Alasdair Middleton, who brought the hugely popular The Adventures of Pinocchio to Opera North in 2007, now bring this short, small-scale opera, Swanhunter, an energetically enticing tale based on Finnish mythology.
Against his mother’s wishes, the determined hero Lemminkäinen travels North to find a bride. Along the way he is met by challenges and quests that will delight and enthral audiences and show that a mother’s love conquers all, even death.
Swanhunter will premiere in the Howard Assembly Room, Leeds, before touring to smaller venues across the North of England in conjunction with a committed education programme with local schools, run by Opera North’s highly acclaimed education department.
