Babur in London

The Opera Group presents a work combining the contemporary poetry of Jeet Thayil with original music by Edward Rushton. In a London suburb, four young men and women are preparing a terrorist act. As their mission draws closer they are disturbed by the ghost of Babur, first Mughal Emperor, poet and warrior. Challenging their convictions, he calls them 'children playing in battle, in love with death', but what are his motives for interfering? John Fulljames directs the Opera Group. (Note: suitable for ages 14 and over. On June 27 there is be a post-show talk with Linbury Prize winner Sarah Beaton, the set and costume designer.)
