Jonathan Dove’s warmly honest and funny opera is based on a true story of a refugee trapped and living at a major international airport. The music is gloriously melodic, inventive and accessible. Flight – funny, touching and life affirming as it is – has become one of the most popular and performed British operas in recent decades.
