This spring as David McVicar’s production of Gounod’s Faust returns to the main stage at the Royal Opera House on 4 April, the theme of Faust has inspired two world premieres in the Linbury Studio Theatre, from British composers Luke Bedford and Matthew Herbert.
Luke Bedford’s new work Through His Teeth written in collaboration with Scottish playwright David Harrower will open on 3 April and electronic pioneer, composer and sound artist Matthew Herbert’s opera The Crackle opens on 5th April.
Matthew Herbert’s production integrates technology into the fabric of the musical score, blending instrumentalists and electronics in a live mix which will involve real-time integration of a smartphone application Chirp, which allows people to share sounds and online content as one phone ‘sings’ to another.
Very clever, indeed.
