British Youth Opera - English Eccentrics

By Malcolm Williamson
Libretto by Geoffrey Dunn based on the book by Edith Sitwell.

In this rarely performed chamber piece we meet hermits, quacks, mariners, indefatigable travellers, and men of learning. Peopled with – as the title suggests – the most absurd of English eccentricity, this is a glorious gallery of the extremes of human nature, portrayed with humour, sympathy, knowledge, and love.
