Liszt research shortlisted for Fedora Prize

last modified Jan 30, 2018 12:56 PM

A research project by David Trippett into Franz Liszt’s rediscovered Italian opera, Sardanapalo, has been shortlisted for a Fedora Prize. The Fedora circle, a group of European philanthropists and art institutions, supports innovative productions in ballet and opera each year. Each year Fedora selects one opera production to support with a prize of €150,000. Trippett, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Music, is producing the first edition of Act 1 from Liszt’s opera, 170 years after it was abandoned by Liszt because of his dissatisfaction with the libretto for Acts 2-3. The planned world premiere of opera has been shortlisted, with the winner to be selected by a Jury and announced in June 2018.

Online voting for all the shortlisted productions is encouraged here.
