The Stone God

In November we are proud to announce that Arcadian Opera will be premiering a new opera, The Stone God, based on a children’s novel written by the award winning Chinese author Hong Ying. Composed by Nicholas Michael Smith MBE, an Englishman who has lived in China for many years, the opera is a sensitive fusion of east and west in a magical tale for all ages. The opera will be preceded by an orchestral illustration of another of Hong Ying’s popular books The Girl from the French Fort. The story will be narrated by the perenially popular actor Tim Bentinck.
