Royal Academy Opera presents an ensemble piece for ten singers and two pianists by Jonathan Dove. The opera sets Jane Austen’s third novel (libretto by Alasdair Middleton) and tells of Fanny Price, a shy young girl with a strong moral sense, who is sent by her impoverished parents to live with her wealthy uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram. Despite being treated as an outsider by most of the Bertram family, Fanny becomes extremely attached to her cousin Edmund, but her love for him is threatened when Henry and Mary Crawford visit the neighbourhood with their own romantic plans. Directed by John Ramster; the conductor is Lionel Friend.
