Opera Chaser's 'Outstanding Director Award' 2015
Congratulations to 'our' LUKE LEONARD on being named 'Outstanding Director' in the OperaChaser's inaugurual Opera Awards! No surprise to all of us here, of course, working on Gertrude Opera's festival production of David Lang's the difficulty of crossing a field was a transformative experience in Luke's hands.
Luke is to be our Resident International Director with us next year - lucky Studio Young Artists, to be able to work intensively on developing theatrical skills and exploring dramatic and physical approaches to performance with such a talented and insightful artist!
Stay tuned for more details of our 2016 plans - they are slow to be finalised as we are in fund-raising mode - we will have plenty more to say towards the end of February!
