The Aspern Papers

22 April 2022 to 24 April 2022 Susie Sainsbury Theatre

Hagemann Rosenthal Associates is proud to announce their first full opera composed by Philip Hagemann in association with Pegasus Opera Company, The Aspern Papers.

The Aspern Papers is a novella by American writer Henry James, originally published in 1888. Set in 19th-century Venice, The Aspern Papers tells the tale of ambitious editor Morton Vint who is trying to obtain poet Jeffrey Aspern's romantic letters to Juliana Bordereau - his beautiful muse and lover. Philip Hagemann adapted The Aspern Papers into a thrilling opera and has retained Henry James's suspense throughout the story and stayed true to the rich development of his characters. The Aspern Papers stars Jacob Bettinelli, a bass baritone originally from Hong Kong. Lauren Easton, an Australian/Mauritian mezzo soprano. Melody Compton, Oscar Castellino, Monwabisi Lindi and Julia Daramy-Williams. Legendary Tenor Ronald Samm also stars. Artistic Director of Pegasus Opera Company and renowned soprano soloist Alison Buchanan plays Tina.
