Royal Academy Opera is thrilled to present the world première of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s opera Kommilitonen! (‘Young Blood!’), co-commissioned with The Juilliard School, who will present the opera in Autumn 2011 in New York.

No doubt this will grab the attention of everyone. Maxwell Davies's composition seems incredibly detailed, meticulously researched and thought provoking depicting the struggles of the 'White Rose' in Nazi Germany, the cultural Revolution in China and the segregation struggle in America. Performances on Friday 18, Monday 21, Wednesday 23 and Friday 25 March
