Mark-Anthony Turnage and Jonathan Moore’s groundbreaking and radical work sent shockwaves through the opera world when it premiered in 1988. The Sunday Times called it “riveting total theatre … a resounding, unanimous triumph”.

Now, on the thirtieth anniversary of his original staging, director Jonathan Moore brings this East End masterpiece home, in a brand new production for the Grimeborn Opera Festival.

“The most exciting new opera London has seen for years… Moore’s production is direct, spectacular, inescapable.” – Evening Standard on Jonathan Moore’s original production

Live music performed by a full band, sung in English
