The Composers’ Fund: Luke Styles
Find out more by visiting:
Luke Styles is a composer prolific in opera, the theatre and instrumental music. Over the last four years Luke’s operas including Macbeth and Tycho’s Dream have been performed at Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Vault Festival. These operas have explored diverse worlds including cabaret, war and science fiction, and allowed him to delve into sensual lyricism, humour, chaos and darkness in his music.
The fund will support time to work closely with the librettist Alan McKendrick on the libretto and conductor David Bates on the musical language of a new (and perhaps the worlds first) Neo-Baroque opera.
Luke Styles was part of the New Music Biennial in 2014, and was commissioned by PRS Foundation through Juice to create ‘The Girls Who Wish to Marry Stars’. Find out more on our Youtube channel:
