Hitchcock's innovative symbolism in award-winning opera.

One of the most successful new operas in Europe in the last two years, Private View began with a collaboration between Bergen National Opera and Muziektheater Transparant (Antwerp).

Bergen National Opera introduced Belgian composer Annelies Van Parys to Shetland-based poet Jen Hadfield at one of BNO/ AdOpera's development academies. The result was an astonishing chamber opera based on Hitchcock's Rear Window. Private View has won three major awards including the prestigeous Fedora Prize for new opera.

Featuring Neue Vocalsolisten from Stuttgart and BIT20 Ensemble from Bergen
