The UK premiere of a dance-opera by Pascal Dusapin

In this searingly beautiful and sensuous work for voice and body, Dusapin explores the pain and passion of two lovers who are forced apart to separate worlds. Springing from the myth of Orpheus but with an intriguing contemporary take - she is the one who wants to be followed. 

Mixed with the haunting sounds of harpsichord and Arabic oud, Dusapin's gleaming, shifting score conveys a timeless world within which the movement of dancers and singers can play out their story of loss and desire.
