Lindbury Studio
Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
United Kingdom

Royal Opera House Associate Company Music Theatre Wales, and Scottish Opera

This one-act opera, an adaptation of a short story by Thomas Hardy, explores the power of the imagination and the boundaries between reality and fantasy.

Huw Watkins is admired across the UK for his work as a composer and pianist, and has an impressive body of orchestra, chamber and vocal works. For In the Locked Room, he teams up with poet and librettist David Harsent, with whom he previously collaborated in 2009 on the chamber opera Crime Fiction. Harsent’s work in opera also includes his libretto for Harrison Birtwistle’s The Minotaur, which was given its premiere at the Royal Opera House in 2008.

In the Locked Room is brought to the Linbury Studio Theatre by Music Theatre Wales in collaboration with Scottish Opera. The production is directed by Michael McCarthy and Matthew Richardson.
