ENO's new 2012/13 season in full

The ENO's 2012/13 season includes premieres from Philip Glass (The Perfect American) and Michel van der Aa (Sunken Garden) and nine new productions from some of today's most iconoclastic stage directors. The Verdi bicentenary begins in the UK with Peter Konwitschny’s new production of La traviata. There's the first full professional staging of Vaughan Williams’ The Pilgrim’s Progress since the Festival of Britain in 1951. And there are new productions from David McVicar (Medea), Richard Jones (Julietta), Calixto Bieito (Carmen), Michael Keegan-Dolan (Julius Caesar) and Rupert Goold (Wozzeck).
