The UK premiere of Joby Talbots Everest: a spectacular drama of life, death and the human spirit on the roof of the world.

May 1996, and as their plans disintegrate and a blizzard closes in, four climbers confront the summit of Mount Everest and a life-or-death choice. Based on a true story, Talbots opera has a contemporary setting, but an eternal theme: the limits of human courage, and the unbreakable power of nature.

Gripping, edge of your seat story-telling wrote one US critic after its premiere in 2015. If you want to see where opera is headed in the 21st-century, don't miss this production. Well second that and we think you will too.
