edges ensemble (Parkinson)
Marco Blaauw flugelhorn (Stockhausen)
Lore Lixenberg voice (Pound, Stockhausen)
Aisha Orazbayeva violin (Pound)
In an attempt to shift our perception of what opera can do and be, we present a second instalment of To A New Definition of Opera, in which performance, video art and neglected modernist opera rub shoulders.
Alongside a new commission from British performance artist Sue Tompkins, the night will include composer Tim Parkinson’s apocalyptic anti-opera TIME WITH PEOPLE performed by edges ensemble and Los Angeles-based artist Ryan Trecartin's dystopian film Center Jenny.
The centrepiece of the evening will be the UK premiere of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s celebrated Pieta from Dienstag aus Licht, with the voice of Lore Lixenberg and flugelhorn of Marco Blaauw.
Interlaced throughout the evening will be an extremely rare performance of excerpts from Ezra Pound's troubadour opera about medieval ne'er-do-wells, Le Testament de Villon, which critic Richard Taruskin called 'a modernist triumph'.
