Paul Bunyan Tickets

London Opera
ENO Studio Live brings Benjamin Britten's hit operetta Paul Bunyan to the newly renovated Alexandra Palace Theatre!
Following its sell-out run at Wilton’s Music Hall in 2018, ENO will again perform Paul Bunyan, Britten’s retelling of the legend of the eponymous giant. As part of ENO's Studio Live series, we present the immense power of opera in intimate theatre environments while celebrating emerging and established UK talents. Director Jamie Manton’s five-star production explores dreams, and the nature of civilisation and its impact on the ecology of the world we inhabit. The production features designs by Camilla Clarke, a winner of the 2015 Linbury Prize for Stage Design, lighting by Marc Rosette, and choreography by Jasmine Ricketts. It will be conducted by ENO’s chorus master, James Henshaw. ENO Harewood Artists Elgan Llŷr Thomas and Rowan Pierce reprise their roles as Johnny Inkslinger and Tiny respectively, alongside the ENO Chorus. Olivier Award-winning actor Simon Russell Beale will again provide the offstage recorded voice of the titular giant. Performed by arrangement with Faber Music Ltd, London

    An imaginative, superbly sung production of a rarely seen piece - terrific.

    Enjoyable production of a little know opera..Alexandra Palace Theatre was a great venue. I went as much to see the theatre as the production. I hope ENO puts on more lesser know operas.

    We LOVED the Alexandra palace theatre! A wonderful addition to North London venues. The performance of Paul Bunyan was joyous and beautifully sung/played. Bravo ENO! More like this please!

    Great singing, and full use made of the very interesting venue. A great shame that there were NO PROGRAMMES available - they had all run out. Very bad planning on ENO's part. That greatly detracted from the full enjoyment of the evening.
