We're joined opera students Bianca Andrew and Joanna Skillett to discuss our autumn term double-bill of contrasting Russian masterpieces, Stravinsky’s Mavra and Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta. We discuss why these two operas are being performed together, what it's like to prepare for such a contrasting double-bill, the challenges of singing in Russian and the benefits of double-casting. The Mavra/Iolanta double-bill runs in the Silk Street Theatre from 31 October - 7 November.
