TIPPETT King Priam - the World Première

Michael Tippett's 1962 opera King Priam marked a turning point for the composer, establishing his reputation as a major British composer almost overnight after more than a decade of lukewarm criticism.

This week we present that world première performance, as broadcast live from the Coventry Cathedral Festival by the BBC, in a superbly restored and remastered first-ever release of this major milestone for British opera.
