Following its sell-out success at Wilton’s Music Hall in September 2018, English National Opera’s acclaimed production of Benjamin Britten’s lesser-known work, Paul Bunyan, will be revived from 9 to 13 May 2019 at the historic Alexandra Palace Theatre.
Paul Bunyan, an ENO Studio Live production, is a parable on the American Dream from Benjamin Britten and WH Auden, telling the story of the eponymous giant as he builds a lumber farm with a sprawling cast of accomplices.
