George Benjamin and Martin Crimp reveal their much-anticipated new opera

George Benjamin and Martin Crimp's new opera Lessons in Love and Violence will be premiered at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, on May 10 and will be performed six times between then and May 26. Their last opera, Written On Skin, was a huge success for Benjamin and Crimp, and the DVD recording won the Gramophone Contemporary Award in 2014.

The Royal Opera have published a fascinating, deep insight into the new opera, beginning with an interview with the composer and librettist and moving on to performances of sections from the opera by Barbara Hannigan and Stéphane Degout, which you can enjoy below:
