About

The Royal Opera House presents the world premiere of George Benjamin and British playwright Martin Crimp's new opera, Lessons in Love and Violence, with the composer himself at the podium! The production brings together soprano Barbara Hannigan, stage director Katie Mitchell, and designer Vicki Mortimer, reprising the creative team of their wildly successful 2012 Written on Skin that was hailed as "truly a 21st-century masterpiece" (The Times).
