Guildhall School of Music & Drama Announces 2023 Summer Events

By Logan Martell

The Guildhall School of Music & Drama has announced their 2023 season of summer events.

Among the events is “Sāvitri & Blond Eckbert,” a double bill of chamber operas that come from opposite ends of the 20th century.

The former, by Holst, is based on a Sanskrit epic, and explore themes of love and devotion in the face of death, with an original, English libretto.

The latter opera, by Judith Weir, takes inspiration from the dark fairy tail by Romantic German writer Ludwig Tieck, and follows a husband and wife as their solitary life in the woods unravels following the appearance of a mysterious visitor.

The concert will be conducted by Timothy Redmond, with direction by Ashley Dean, and designs by Anna Bonomelli and Andrew May.

Performance Dates: June 5-12, 2023.
