About the performance

Benjamin Britten's opera The Little Sweep, written to a libretto by Eric Crozier, premiered in Aldeborough on the 14th of June 1949. It was conceived as the second part of the performance Let's Make an Opera! and is presented in the spirit of home theater: along with adult actors, there were also children singing and acting. Little ‘actors’ (Guy, Juliet, Sophie, Tina, Hugh, Johnny and Sam) performed on stage under their real names, and the props a rocking horse Dobbin, a children's toy belonging to the composer himself.

Premiered on March 7, 2020.

Sung in English with Russian dialogs.

Russian text by Olga Varshaver.

Presented without interval.
