Taking the Stage

Come and explore some of the 20th century's most fascinating works for small ensembles, as the RDSO presents two one-act chamber operas by two renowned composers.

Stravinsky's L'Histoire du soldat is a powerful postwar fable, full of drama and musical vituosity, while Shafer's Beauty and the Beast reimagines operatic conventions, creating a work that is both familiar and new at the same time.
