Found & Lost: Discover the secret life of a luxury hotel with an immersive opera experience
Opera fans are in for a treat this winter with a unique new production coming to London. From acclaimed composer Emily Hall – winner of the Artist in Residence 2015 – is a new promenade opera, which will première at the lavish five-star Corinthia Hotel London.
Rather than sit and listen, an intimate audience of 12 will be taken on a musical journey across various rooms in the hotel. You’ll get to peek inside some amazing spaces normally off-limits to the public, from the master bedroom to the boiler room.
Accompanying the performances will be a live choir with specially recorded music as the audience move from room to room while the drama unfolds.
The new piece is the result of a collaboration between Hall, sound designer David Sheppard and poet and Jerwood-Aldeburgh winner Matthew Welton, inspired by texts found within the hotel. Previews start on 25 January with the one-hour performances taking place nightly at 7pm and 8.15pm with 3pm matinees on Saturdays.
- Found & Lost takes place from 25 January – 3 February 2016 at the Corinthia Hotel London, Whitehall Place, Whitehall, SW1A 2BD. Nearest station: Embankment or Charing Cross. Tickets: £27.50, Under 26 and Concessions: £20, Premium tickets: £35 (inc limited edition print of the libretto, a download code for the music and a glass of Laurent-Perrier Champagne).
