Everest at Barbican

  • Barbican Centre Silk Street London, England, EC2Y United Kingdom (map)

The BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers, along with soloists Michael Mayes, Veronika Haller, Andrew Bidlack and Craig Verm, will give the UK premiere of Joby’s 2015 one-act opera, Everest, in a semi-staged version. The libretto by Gene Scheer is based on the tragic events of a 1996 ascent of the mountain and the work will be preceded by Everest Prelude, a 15-minute orchestral work set against remarkable footage from Mallory and Irvine’s similarly ill-fated 1924 ascent.
