Jonathan Dove Mansfield Park

Fanny Price, a shy young girl with a strong moral sense, 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. Jonathan Dove had longed to turn Jane Austen’s third novel into an opera ever since he first read it. His setting of Alasdair Middleton’s libretto was premiered last summer by Heritage Opera. Royal Academy Opera is delighted to present the first London production of this true ensemble piece for ten singers and two pianists.
