As part of a special program for this year's Beijing Music Festival, Daniel Kramer, artistic director of the English National Opera, presented a master class for classical music lovers in Beijing on Tuesday.

Daniel, who is also an international opera and theater director, gave brief introductions to the English National Opera's most representative opera works and introduced his plans to promote innovative operas in Britain.

He also discussed the possibility of working with cultural festivals in China.

"Music is a universal language connecting us, and it is possible to explore new forms of music in opera together with China," he said.

"It is also critical to expand the boundary of operas and explore more routes in future development," he added. 

After the master class, The KT Wong Foundation, the event's organizer screened a filmed version of the English National Opera's Peter Grimes.
