The BBC is looking for a crane operator to help run a major new opera production.
The job will be part of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s two-year tour of London’s Southbank Centre.
The orchestra is in the process of relocating to a new location, and is planning a new opera, The Winter’s Tale, which will open in the autumn.
We are also looking for crane operators for the construction of a new, state-of-the-art performance hall in the heart of London, and the production of our new opera.
The BBC Symphony orchestra is a world-renowned musical institution and has produced over 500 operas, including the Oscar-winning The Winter Wept, The Magic Flute, and The Firebird.
The opera’s composer, Richard Strauss, will conduct.
The conductor is Daniel Kallenbaum, who has been a member of the orchestra since 2006.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in such an important project and to bring a new sound to the orchestra,” Mr Kallinbaum said.
“I am particularly delighted that we are able to provide a safe, secure and enjoyable environment for the orchestra to work in for the first time since their founding in 1869.”
A crane operator would be required to work from 7am to 6pm every day, but will be required in the afternoon.
It is the first of several crane jobs for the BBC orchestra to be undertaken in London in the coming months.
The new construction, which has been designed by London-based engineering firm SSE, is due to open in November 2019.
The Southbank Opera is due for its opening on October 27, 2019.
