For news about Bernard, read his own report:
I'm working on two pieces simultaneously at the moment:
1. A children's opera for the W11 Opera company in London. Chincha-chancha cooroo is based on a Bengali children's story/animal fable and will be performed at the Royal College of Music in London on 9/10 December 2006 (book early to avoid disappointment).
2. A new piece for the BBC Singers based on the Norse myth "The Death of Balder." Initial ideas for the piece will be tried out in a public workshop at BBC Maida Vale Studios on 28 January, with the finished piece being performed at the Spitalfields Festival in London on 12 June 2006.
After these I shall have a rest!
