MusicPlus: James Clutton

Thursday, October 29, 2020

James Clutton, director of Opera at Opera Holland Park, speaks to Classical Music about making performances work in the ‘new normal’.


We’ve always talked about bringing opera to the community and bringing the community to opera and we need to push ahead with that. We will have to be open with our audiences about reducing the size of orchestras and choruses in the next year. We can survive but we need you the audience to believe in us and stay with us.
