Gavin’s first opera – The Monstrous Child – will be premiered at the Royal Opera House Linbury Theatre in February 2019.

Based on the book by best-selling children’s author Francesca Simon, with libretto by the author herself, The Monstrous Child tells the story of Hel, a sarcastic, emo teenager who is human from the waist up and corpse from the waist down and just happens to be the Norse Goddess of the Dead.
