This challenging new production by Sophie Gilpin brings Puccini’s masterpiece right up to date: university students making the most of their new-found freedom by exploring everything that the modern world has to offer: alcohol, drugs, love and libido. They discover, as our audience does, that some things never change – the joy and pain of love, the secrets we keep from each other and the tragedy of our own mortality.  Costume design by 18 year-old fashion photography student Louie Londt. With a cast drawn from the cream of  the world’s best conservatoires, they are led from the piano by the award-winning maestro, Andrew Charity, with an orchestral ensemble of five.
