  • Guildhall School of Music & Drama Silk Street London, England, EC2Y United Kingdom (map)

The Tale of Januarie is a new opera by an all-Guildhall School team based on Chaucer's The Merchants Tale. A comedy of love and age, the opera is sung in Middle English in order to enhance its authenticity, but also to heighten the comedy. Singers, drawn from the School's Opera Course, will sing the première of this exciting and hilarious new work, having followed its development from page to stage.
