John Harbison | Full Moon in March

Described by its composer as ‘a back-of-the-truck bare bones opera’, John Harbison’s Full Moon in March has a libretto adapted by the composer from WB Yeats’ A Full Moon in March, and tells the story of a queen, a swineherd and the failed courting ritual between them. It receives its EU premiere on 24 October as part of contemporary music group Lontano’s festival of American music (22-27 October) with the Queen played by mezzo-soprano Caryl Hughes, the Swineherd by baritone Jeremy Huws Williams and two attendants played by soprano Charmian Bedford and tenor Edward Lee.
