Congratulations to Alpesh Chauhan, Birmingham Opera Company and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra as their production of Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk wins the RPS Opera and Music Theatre Award.

Described by The Times as “a triumph”,  Graham Vick’s production brought together professionals, students, and members of the community to create a cast which highlighted the local talent Birmingham has to offer. Returning to his home town, Alpesh’s masterful control was praised by audiences and critics alike, with The Times lauding his musical direction as a “miracle of rapport”.
