Between Worlds

Between Worlds

rare power to remind listeners of their own inner freedom

Overview

Between Worlds is the highly anticipated operatic debut from composer Tansy Davies, who collaborates with librettist Nick Drake and director Deborah Warner on this world premiere.

In this sensitive, spiritual and ultimately uplifting journey inspired by the events of 9/11, a disparate group of individuals is trapped high up in one of the Twin Towers, caught between earth and heaven, life and death.

Described as possessing a ‘rare power to remind listeners of their own inner freedom’ (Guardian), Davies’ distinctive sound world combines unrestrained exuberance with emotional depth. Her requiem for choir, strings and electronics, As with Voices and with Tears, was nominated for a 2011 South Bank Sky Arts Award.

Barbican Artistic Associate Deborah Warner directs the composer’s first opera, following her latest theatrical success with The Testament of Mary, seen here in May 2014, and celebrated ENO productions such as Death in Venice and Eugene Onegin.
