In this film we go behind the scenes at rehearsals for Cave, a bold new opera exploring one father's quest for survival in a world devastated by climate change. With a first glimpse at the action, and interviews with composer Tansy Davies, writer Nick Drake, director Lucy Bailey and performers Mark Padmore and Elaine Mitchener.
It has to be daring – you have to push yourself to do things you're not normally asked to do Mark Padmore on preparing for his role in Cave
Cave is a London Sinfonietta commission as part of our 50th Anniversary Season.
Produced by the London Sinfonietta in association with The Royal Opera House.
Supported by the Britten-Pears Foundation, Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and The London Community Foundation.
