ENO is enough

The repertory for the 2012-2013 season of the English National Opera (also known as “Peter Gelb‘s shopping list”) boasts the premiere of a new opera by Philip Glass, The Perfect American, which imagines the last days of Walt Disney. It’s a co-production with Madrid’s Teatro Real and stars bass Christopher Purves as the legendary filmmaker. The company’s program also features nine new productions, including stagings by Peter Konwitschny, Calixto Bieito, David McVicar and Richard Jones. [the arts desk]
