In the coming months Kathryn will be performing in the role of Hermia in Opera North’s production of Britten’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
With one of Britten’s richest vocal scores, A Midsummer Night’s Dream shows a composer at the heights of his powers. Marvellously orchestrated Britten succeeded in creating perfectly fitting, highly atmospheric yet utterly distinctive soundworlds for the various group of characters evoking the sighing, creaking and rustling of a forest.
The production opens on Saturday 28th September 2013 at The Grand Theatre in Leeds with performances on tour in Salford Quays, Nottingham and Newcastle.
A revival of the 2008 production: “A richly imaginative staging, full of hallucinogenic poetry and freewheeling fun” The Telegraph
