CLEMENCY NOMINATED FOR OLIVIER AWARD
James MacMillan’s opera ‘Clemency’, for which Michael wrote the libretto, has been shortlisted for an Olivier Award for Best New Opera Production. ‘Clemency’ was directed by Katie Mitchell, and was premiered at the Royal Opera House in May last year. It will be performed at this year’s Edinburgh Festival by Scottish Opera. Early next year, it will receive a new production in America with the Boston Symphony Opera.
