Michel arrives in a small town, intent on finding the unknown girl he once heard singing at an open window. But is he the only sane man in a world where everyone else has lost their memory, or a madman trapped in a recurring dream from which there is no escape?

Based on a 1930s French surrealist play set in a poetical no-man’s-land poised between dreams and reality, Julietta is the operatic masterpiece of Martinu, the finest Czech composer in the generation following Janácek. ENO’s new production of this poignant work is directed by Richard Jones, whose inspired staging of The Tales of Hoffmann – ‘a potent cocktail of image and reality, illusions and fantasies’ (Evening Standard) – was one of last season’s five-star hits. Edward Gardner, ENO’s award-winning Music Director, conducts a large cast led by tenor Peter Hoare, star of A Dog’s Heart and The Damnation of Faust, and ENO Harewood Artist Julia Sporsén as Julietta, the girl of his dreams.
