Stephen Fry curates Deloitte Ignite Verdi/Wagner at the Royal Opera House

This year’s Deloitte Ignite will be curated by opera darling Stephen Fry, and includes bags of free events!

This year the festival will be spread over a whole month instead of one weekend, and celebrates the maverick masters Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner with live radio broadcasts, workshops and pop-up performances inspired by the two.

To Do List picks include:

  • Free (ticketed) Day Time events including the amazing New Art Club & Gandini Juggling
  • Simon Callow – Inside Wagner’s Head, a new one man show portraying the way-out life of Richard Wagner.
  • The Science of Opera with Stephen Fry and Alan Davies (SOLD OUT) – we hope they move this amazing event to another, bigger venue in the ROH!
  • Theatre designer Es Devlin’s super exhibition, ‘The Ring Cyclotrope”
