Where the Wild Things Are – An opera double bill by Oliver Knussen

On Nov 3, enter the weird and wonderful world of Maurice Sendak's much-loved books for children and see his iconic drawings brought to life in these wildly imaginative operas by Oliver Knussen. In this edition, we look at how these new productions have come together from its beginnings to the dress rehearsal for the first performance at the Aldeburgh Festival before it comes to the Barbican later this year. Along the way, we speak to director and designer, Netia Jones, costume designers, monsters, Jenny the Dog, and Max himself. These performances take place during BBC SO's Total Immersion weekend, celebrating Oliver Knussen at 60. Book your tickets now and ‘Let the wild rumpus start!'
