The Golden Ticket- as part of Wexford Festival Opera

‘Greetings to you the lucky finder of the golden ticket from Mr. Willy Wonka… you can not imagine the marvellous surprises that await you’ 

The Golden Ticket, based on Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is the second opera by Iowa-born composer and conductor, Peter Ash.

Charlie Bucket, the boy hero, lives in poverty with his aged and infirm grandparents and he dreams of winning one of five golden tickets that Willy Wonka, the confectionery wizard, has hidden in his chocolate bars.

How Charlie succeeds in his quest to be one of the lucky winners, and how his life is changed more wonderfully than he could have imagined, is told in a melody-based opera full of humour, wit and virtuosity.

…a really impressive achievement. It’s full of musical imagination, colour and invention. I love it. (Sir Simon Rattle)
