ABOUT THE SHOW 

THE ICE BREAK

An opera in three acts by Michael Tippett,

Directed by Graham Vick,

with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andrew Gourlay

and the Birmingham Opera Company Chorus 

Michael Tippett’s visionary masterpiece will find its home in Birmingham in April. A gripping and emotional story of inter-racial, intergenerational, political, and personal identity, it is an opera for our times.
