Conservatoire and Opera House Collaboration

23 August 2013

The Guildhall School of Music & Drama, together with the Royal Opera House, have just announced plans for their first Doctoral Composer-in-Residence. Starting this September 2013, composer Philip Venables will spend three years researching and writing a major operatic work, for performance in the Linbury Studio Theatre the end of the residency. 

This collaboration is the first example of an opera company joining forces with a conservatoire to offer a Composer-in-Residence studentship which leads to a doctoral degree. This new initiative will be part of Guildhall’s existing doctoral programme, fully funded by the conservatoire and supported by the ROH. While the idea of a resident composer has long been established in the world of orchestral music development, it is a fairly new notion in opera. 

Philip Venables said of his appointment: ‘I'm really excited about starting work on this opera with the Royal Opera House and the Guildhall School – it’s a potential game changer for me, and a chance, in a structured and supported way, to really explore what opera means to me, to be completely inventive, bold and daring and to present the results of that on a high-profile stage… I know there's going to be a lot of collaboration with writers and hopefully some exciting and diverse cameo performers. It'll be great to be able to try everything out over the next three years at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Bring it on!’
