Philip Venables in Conversation: Denis & Katya

Saturday 14 March, 3pm
Foyle Pavilion, Southbank Centre

The composer explores the creative process behind his latest production in conversation with colleagues from London Sinfonietta and Music Theatre Wales.

Composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman – the duo behind the award-winning 4.48 Psychosis – examine the real-life tragedy of Russian runaways Denis Muravyov and Katya Vlasova.

Splicing verbatim text, video, music and theatre, Denis & Katya explores how stories are shaped and shared in our age of trolls, conspiracy theories, fake news, and 24/7 digital connection.

Winner of the Fedora Generali Award for Opera 2019, Denis & Katya is co-commissioned and co-produced by Music Theatre Wales, Opera Philadelphia and Opéra Orchestre National Montpellier, in association with London Sinfonietta.

Attendees are invited to watch part of the dress rehearsal following this talk.
