'Home' - the opera

IMG_Rehearsal Acorn (small).jpg

Graham's new short opera, Home, commissioned by the Royal Opera House for the Linbury Theatre, premiered in April 2012.    Graham asked Jasmin Vardimon to direct the opera and it is scored for two singers (Melanie Pappenheim and Victoria Coupar), three dancers (Luke Borrough, Esteban Fourmi and Aoi Nakamura) and the nine musicians of Graham's band.



The opera focuses on the nature of Home.  What is it?  What does it mean for each of us?  Is it a real physical place or something more personal?  By creating something safe and secure called Home, do we in fact create a fear of that which is outside?  What happens when our fears become realised and the safety of Home has been breached?   Or is it the fear itself which causes the breakdown?
