Nicholas Hytner in Conversation

Jewish Literary Foundation presents Book Week 24

Speakers Nicholas Hytner
Chair Elliot Levey

Sir Nicholas joins fellow Olivier-winner Elliot Levey to reflect on an extraordinary stage and screen career, from Miss Saigon and The Madness of King George to running the National and co-founding The Bridge.

The achievements of Nicholas Hytner in any one of the mediums he has conquered could easily fill an hour.

His Miss Saigon ran for a decade on both sides of the Atlantic; Carousel and The History Boys won him Olivier and Tony awards. He followed his innovative 12-year run as director of the National Theatre by co-founding the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial sector in 80 years, The Bridge. He has directed operas for ENO, the Met and Paris Opera and films including The Madness of King George and The Crucible. He joins fellow Olivier-winner Elliot Levey – who he directed in His Dark Materials and The Habit of Art – to reflect on his extraordinary career.

This event will last approximate 1 hour, without an interval.
