Royal Opera House, Linbury studio
London, United Kingdom
"The Royal Ballet’s Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and the contemporary experimental composer/pianist Max Richter create a fascinating new chamber opera for the Linbury Studio Theatre. The project takes its inspiration from American neuroscientist David Eagleman’s cult book of short stories Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, a collection of witty, clever and thought-provoking ideas on what an ‘afterlife’ could be. The result is an intriguing vision from McGregor, Richter and renowned artist Lorna Heavey of a possible journey after death, populated by computers, suburban anterooms and mind-stretching scenarios. Using music, film and performance, SUM explores an interactive audience experience and takes opera to a whole new level of existence.
Tickets: £25 | £20 students"
Performances - 23 May 2012 to 2 June 2012
