In November last year, we were delighted to premiere 12:42 - a unique film documenting the collaborative creative process of producing brand new operas under lockdown conditions.

Produced almost entirely in quarantine, the documentary follows the ambitious journey of 42 creative people – comprising the National Opera Studio’s Young Artist singers and repetiteurs, in close collaboration with some of today’s most exciting composers and librettists from around the world — to create eleven new opera arias entirely through online work and digital media.
