Enjoy a window into the creative process of developing a new opera, as musical excerpts from Emily Hall’s new piece are brought to life alongside discussion with the creators.

Insanity, electricity and love collide in this sonic voyage into the shared psychosis known as ‘folie à deux’. Six songs are woven together for two singers, an acoustic harp and a specially created electro-magnetic harp to tell the story of a couple living beneath an electricity pylon.

Supported by Britten–Pears Foundation, The Holst Foundation, PRS for Music Foundation, The RVW Trust and Sound and Music.
With thanks to Artsadmin.
