The Tempest (Opera/Score)

Thomas Adès

Thumbnail 240

Thomas Adès’s The Tempest is one of the most striking and successful operas of recent years. It has been performed over 50 times since its premiere at the Royal Opera House in 2004 and continues to delight and inspire audiences all over the world. This paperback full score edition is perfect for use as a study score for conductors and musicians. A numbered and signed limited edition full score is also available. 

From the turbulent orchestral prelude with which it begins to Ariel’s stratospheric yet ethereal ‘Five fathoms deep’ and the radiant quintet of reconciliation in its final act, its composer conjures up a wholly compelling musical world. Responding to librettist Meredith Oakes’s clear, unfussy refashioning of Shakespeare into formalised rhyme schemes, Adès has created a new kind of tonal language that is both direct and communicative but also indelibly contemporary.
