Scoring a Century
'Ladies and gentlemen… the couple time almost forgot… THE JEDERMANNS!’
The Jedermanns, a pair of eccentric ‘song and dance merchants,’ start out on an epic 100-year performance in 1901. As they peddle their wares to an ever-changing world, they struggle through everything the 20th century throws at them – from wars and politics to Hollywood and Fox News.
The London premiere of this clever, witty opera, is a chance to see the next generation of opera stars on stage right at the beginning of their professional careers, as part of our summer season.
