The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC Singers and an internationally-renowned team of solo singers assemble to record a live, public performance of the complete opera, marking 35 years of NMC Records and its support of great titans of British contemporary music.

Two worlds collide in Tippett’s New Year as a visitor from the future (‘Nowhere Tomorrow’) helps the central reclusive character escape from their personal fears and fantasies, and embrace the frightening urban realities of ‘Somewhere Today’. The wildest and most open of his five operas, completed when the composer was aged 83, its influences veer from opera to rock musical, pop song, spoken dialogue, joke, and above all, dance.
