Sky Arts Awards 2013 announced

Music Theatre Wales and Scottish Opera have won the Opera category in this year’s South Bank Show Sky Arts Awards for their co-production of Ghost Patrol, which received its world premiere at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
Written by Scottish composer Stuart MacRae, with a libretto by crime novelist Louise Welsh, the opera explores what happens when civilian life comes into contact with the corrosive effects of war. Its setting is a modern day bar where two soldiers and a woman come together while trying to escape their past.

The opera beat off strong competition to win the Award, including the Royal Opera’s production of Les troyens and Oliver Knussen’s Where the Wild Things Are at the Barbican.

Ghost Patrol and Huw Watkins’ In the Locked Room, which toured the UK as a double bill last autumn, have also been nominated for an Olivier Award in the Outstanding Achievement in Opera category. This year’s Olivier Awards ceremony will take place at the Royal Opera House on 28 April.
