Summary With its stunning visual and musical set pieces such as the Mardi Gras carnival, Berlioz's first completed opera is based on the autobiography of the infamous and celebrated 16th-century goldsmith and sculptor Benvenuto Cellini. Telling the story of thwarted love, elopement, intrigue, disguise and mistaken identity the opera features some of Berlioz's most vibrant and tender music. A stellar cast has been assembled for this new production, led by rising tenor Michael Spyres in the title role, with the stunning soprano Corinne Winters as Cellini's lover, Teresa. ENO favourite Willard White returns to the company to add Pope Clement VII to his already extensive list of roles
