For our 25th anniversary in 2014/15 we're delighted to confirm that we'll be releasing three landmark operas:
May 2014: Harrison Birtwistle Gawain
June 2014: Judith Weir The Vanishing Bridegroom
November 2014: Gerald Barry The Importance of Being Earnest
Sir John Tomlinson, who has supported our Appeal and sings Green Knight on the Gawain re-release, says: "NMC is doing a wonderful job for British music. Comtemporary operas regularly disappear after those first few performances meaning recordings are crucial to keeping them alive. It's very important - this is great music we are speaking about."
Thank you to the trusts, foundations and individuals who helped to raise over £40,000 to ensure these very important operas live on.
We look forward to announcing our anniversary year appeal project later in 2014. Thank you for supporting NMC.
