A collaboration of one of Britain’s foremost composers, Oliver Knussen, with the vivid magical images of American artist and author, Maurice Sendak, evokes a very special form of theater – fantasy opera.

The antics of young Max and his journey to the Land of the Wild Things, and Jennie, the Sealyham terrier’s search for something more than everything, are set against beautifully intricate designs which adhere faithfully to the illustrations in the famous children’s books by Maurice Sendak.

The music is skillfully orchestrated with an unerring ability to depict fantasy characters and scenarios – a rare fusion of wit and lyricism.

Two Fantasy Operas composed and conducted by Oliver Knussen
