Open Session: Like Flesh

Wednesday 31 Oct 2018 6pm

A modern love story

A new opera in development by composer Sivan Eldar (IRCAM) and librettist Cordelia Lynn (Royal Court Theatre, Opera Comique, Paris). Like Flesh is a mosaic of entangled relationships between people and places, a modern love story set in a world that is layered, vulnerable, precarious and shifting. During their residency they investigate the potential of movement as a primary dramatic language in the opera – what this ‘silent’ language can offer beyond existing text and music. They are joined by director Joseph Alford (Royal Opera House, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence) and soprano Juliet Fraser.
