We had an extraordinary week at Printworks London for the world premiere of Cave - our landmark opera by Tansy Davies and writer Nick Drake, directed by Lucy Bailey and conducted by Geoffrey Paterson.
Take a look below at the photographs, reviews and audience reactions that have been flooding in throughout the run.

Congratulations to London Sinfonietta on the production of this new opera and on the co-commission with the Royal Opera House. Bravo to all the performers!— Fiona Harvey (@FionaHarvey30) June 23, 2018
The performance is flawless... The music is immaculately played by a chamber ensemble of the London Sinfonietta enhanced with electronics and conducted by Geoffrey Paterson, " The Telegraph
Spectacularly staged... strikingly atmospheric " The Times
The music is transparent, brazenly beautiful and much use is made of the Sinfonietta’s players as soloists, weaving elaborate individual lines alongside the vocalists. The Guardian
So glad to have seen this tonight. Agree with everything below - try and catch it tomorrow. <>>— Deborah Warner (@deborahwarner59) June 22, 2018
