Opera Holland Park Announces UK Premiere of Little Women

The UK premiere of an opera that has become a modern classic in the USA – “some sort of masterpiece” in the words of the New York Times. Composer Mark Adamo has adapted Louisa May Alcott’s evergreen coming-of-age novel, set around the time of the Civil War. Independent and ambitious Jo, her sisters Meg, Beth and Amy, their devoted mother, boy-next-door Laurie and studious Friedrich Bhaer are brought to life in music of open-hearted immediacy.
