Kaija Saariaho’s opera, L’Amour de loin, was described by The New York Times as ‘Best New Work of the Year 2000’. Having directed the worldwide sensation Corteo for Cirque du Soleil, Daniele Finzi Pasca turns his creative vision to a major new production of this work for ENO.
This combination of physical theatre and modern opera follows a 12th century troubadour’s search for love across a constantly changing theatrical landscape.
ENO Music Director Edward Gardner brings his passion for Saariaho’s music to conducting the rich, sensual score. Roderick Williams, Joan Rodgers and Diana Montague sing the principal roles, interacting with an extraordinary troupe of acrobats and performers.
Run Time: Two hours 40 minutes
