Royal Opera House production park opens tonight

The first phase of the £60m Royal Opera House creative industries production park opens tonight on the 14-acres of grade II-listed High House Farm in Purfleet. The opening will be marked by a specially commissioned opera, Ludd and Isis, which involves professional singers with members of the Thurrock community.

Thurrock residents first for Ludd and Isis tickets

This is a fantastic opportunity to be one of the first to see a world class production made in Thurrock and performed in Purfleet. Professional dancers, singers and musicians from the Royal Opera House will perform alongside the local cast in this spectacular celebration to mark the opening of the High House Production Park and the Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop. The workshop will be home to the scenic painters and carpenters of the Royal Opera House.

Rehearsals For The People’s Opera: Ludd and Isis

It is a fascinating process. Director Tom Guthrie spends a long time with the “people’s” performers, choreographing and nurturing them. It is interesting to watch those involved as we see them in their “ordinary” walks of life.
