Opera and Music Theatre Award

Supported by Cazenove Capital

For an outstanding production or initiative, presented digitally or for a live audience, or for the overall accomplishments of a company or individual in opera and music theatre in the UK.

L’enfant et les sortilèges - Vopera

‘The digital production of Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges burst out of nowhere, courtesy of the newly-formed company Vopera. It’s a spectacular creation that generated welcome employment for a raft of housebound talent, sublimely supported by an ensemble of London Philharmonic players. It lifted spirits and wittily spoke to current times.’
