About the Show/Event

Information for Coraline at Barbican Centre, West End (Opera or Operetta). Coraline is the latest opera from Mark-Anthony Turnage. Turnage is one of today's leading composers and a highly successful opera writer, acclaimed internationally for works including Greek, The Silver Tassie and Anna Nicole, his first Covent Garden commission. For Coraline, his second work for The Royal Opera, he adapts a much-loved story by Neil Gaiman - a British writer who has transformed the landscape of fantasy literature with his highly imaginative, atmospheric and otherworldly narratives. Coraline is classic Gaiman: it is packed with astonishing imagery, all wrapped up in an engrossing yarn. After its publication in 2002 Coraline swept up numerous awards, including Nebula and Hugo awards for Best Novella. In 2009 it was adapted into a stop-motion film directed by Henry Selick - which also received widespread acclaim. The world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage's opera based on Neil Gaiman's much-loved story, in a production at the Barbican directed by Aletta Collins. Sung in English with surtitles.
Approximate runtime 120minutes (including any interval).
