Benjamin Britten on Stage and Screen - Centenary Conference

Friday 5th (14:00) - Sunday 7th July 2013 (13:00)

Centenary Conference, The University of Nottingham

To celebrate Britten’s centenary year, this international conference focuses on the composer’s work in a variety of genres for stage and screen. His many and varied operas will naturally feature prominently, in the shape of new and recent research devoted to his contributions to the large-scale medium on which his enduring reputation largely rests. In addition, his less familiar work for film and radio in the 1930s, and such relatively neglected scores as the three-act ballet The Prince of the Pagodas and the vaudeville The Golden Vanity, will be explored as part of a wider picture that sees him responding to a variety of different musico-dramatic challenges with characteristic virtuosity and flexibility.
