A revealing profile of Britain's senior composer, 86-year-old Sir Michael Tippett , setting the scene for tonight's TV premiere of his recent opera New Year. Filmed both at home in Wiltshire and working in Houston, Texas - where he was rehearsing the opera's first performance - Sir
Michael talks frankly about his life, the importance of dreams, the often mystical themes that run through his work and the inspiration of television. Producer Mischa Scorer • STEREO
Described as an opera-ballet, a masque and a blues musical rolled into one at its stage premiere, Sir Michael Tippett's acclaimed latest opera finds a new visual dimension through the powerful images and effects of this first TV production.
Partly conceived for television - the work was influenced by both Fame and The Flip Side of Dominic Hyde - it was commissioned jointly by the BBC, Glyndebourne and Houston Grand Opera. It tells the contemporary story of an orphan girl in an inner-city slum whose life is changed by visitors from outer space.
With the London Philharmonic and Glyndebourne Festival Chorus. Conducted by Andrew Davis.
