Pascal Dusapin: go behind the scenes of the composer's dance-opera

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 15:33

Director Michael McCarthy talks about Passion, a new co-production by Music Theatre Wales and National Dance Company Wales in association with London Sinfonietta, one of our Resident Orchestras.

Passion is an acclaimed dance-opera composed by Pascal Dusapin and it is performed here as part of our 2018/19 Classical Season. 

Dusapin: Passion | Southbank Centre

McCarthy talks about the excitement and fear that goes with directing this new kind of work, where dancers aren't just given their steps but rather the choreography integrates with the breath and movement of the singers. And you can also hear a couple of excerpts of the extraordinary music ahead of its full performance. 

Dusapin's Passion takes place on Saturday 13 October in Queen Elizabeth Hall, and tickets are available now.
