The Enchanted Pig, Buxton Festival, July 2021Posted on 14 July 2021
This Jonathan Dove opera is based on a fairy tale. A young woman named Flora must use the power of love to break a spell on the husband chosen for her by fate. He has been turned into a pig, and the antidote to this enchantment is true love. But it involves a journey via the moon, the sun and the stars. The young cast gave it terrific vocal energy.
