It is with regret that we have to announce that the collaboration between Montreux Jazz Festival and Royal Opera House is not going ahead. The Montreux Jazz Festival has announced the programme for its annual July festival, more details can be found here: www.montreuxjazzfestival.com/2013/

However, the Royal Opera House will be presenting the first London performances of Antony and The Johnsons: Swanlights – a remarkable meditation on light, nature and femininity. Originally commissioned by New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Swanlights, enjoyed huge acclaim when it was presented at Radio City Music Hall in January 2012 and the 2012 Melbourne Festival.

    Nice. A weekend event would be the ticket for me!

  7. I heard at the gala night "Montreux zu Gast in Berlin", which took place in the Swiss Ambassady of Berlin, Germany last Friday, June 14, 2013, that for different reasons there will be no Montreux @ ROH London in July 2013. The Montreux Jazz Festival instead is said to stay with the plan of a New York tribute for late festival founder Claude Nobs, the date is supposed to be on Oct 19, 2013.
