L'enfant et les sortilèges


Samling Academy Opera returns to present a new production of Ravel’s lyric fantasy –
‘The Child and the Spells’.

L’enfant et les sortilèges is a cautionary tale where a naughty child’s actions rebound as inanimate objects and animals learn to talk and seek their revenge on the child.

This fully-staged production is directed entirely by Samling Artists, with director Miranda Wright and music director Jean-Paul Pruna leading a cast of Academy participants both
past and present. Samling Artist – Newcastle born soprano Ruth Jenkins-Róbertsson – will join the cast in the role of Fire and Nightingale.

Movement direction by Dena Lague, who has performed with Matthew Bourne’s celebrated New Adventures for the past decade and lit by innovative international lighting designer,
Matt Haskins, this production follows the success of the Academy’s first opera production in 2013, Benjamin Britten’s Albert Herring.

Samling Academy extends the reach of Samling’s professional Artist Programme to young musicians in the North East of England and, since 2012, has set new standards in classical
singing and piano accompaniment.
