The London Coliseum welcomes Deborah Warner’s presentation of Benjamin Britten’s famous final opera and in doing so reminds audiences of the English National Opera how the celebrated composer was able to craft brilliant pieces of work during his lifetime. “Death in Venice” appears as part of a year that sees other well known shows from various composers hit the stage, from “La Bohème” to “The Barber of Seville”, among others, and as a result audiences are in for a treat when the operatic masterpiece arrives in 2013.
Benjamin Britten is celebrated as one of the best English composers of the 20th century and this is demonstrated with the wealth of shows he pieced together during his career, ranging from famous works like “Peter Grimes” to other pieces like “Paul Bunyon”, “The Turn of the Screw” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, among others. “Death in Venice” emerged as his final opera and it was adapted from the novella by Thomas Mann, eventually receiving its premiere in the UK in 1973.
So with Warner directing Britten’s famous piece, “Death in Venice” is a must-see event at the London Coliseum and it has its first performance at the venue on Friday 14th June 2013.
