The Venetian Interludes were composed by Helen Porter as interludes for an opera based on Henry James' novella 'The Aspern Papers.' The opera was partly developed and workshopped in collaboration with ROH2.

The Venetian Interludes, forming the central structure of the work, were completed in 2008 and first performed by Sarum Orchestra in January 2009.

The composition of the Venetian Interludes was supported with a Finzi Trust Scholarship.
