Broadcaster, novelist and opera lover Penny Smith joins the podcast this week. She talks about her early trips to the ballet, her memories of her first trip to the opera, and her appreciation for what performers do. She also tells us why she stopped working as an arts critic, and answers some quick fire opera questions. From the Producer's Office is a series of informal podcasts with Opera Holland Park’s Director of Opera, James Clutton. In conversation with creatives and collaborators across the industry, we explore the process of putting opera on stage, and how the artists involved approach their craft.
