Stephen Plaice is a dramatist working in opera, theatre and film. In the last decade he has become one of Britain's leading librettists and bookwriters for musical theatre.
*Stephen has recently written and directed a 'dramatized recital', In and Out of Love, that will be touring the South East in 2013. It incorporates a series of classic opera duets to follow the trajectory of two opera singers as they try to find the balance between their emotional lives and their careers.
* Stephen has begun work on his adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novella Amy Foster with the composer Rolf Martinsson.
The production is scheduled for the Royal Swedish Opera in 2016.
* With the composer Julian Broughton and the conductor Oliver Gooch, Stephen is currently developing a children's opera The Pedlar of Swaffham for Opera East.
