Les Enfants Terribles - Royal Opera and Royal Ballet at The Barbican

  • The Barbican, London Silk Street London, England, EC2Y8DS United Kingdom (map)

Emily Edmonds sings Agathe and Dargelos in this Royal Ballet and Royal Opera collaboration, at the Barbican Theatre.

Les Enfants Terribles is the third in Philip Glass’s trilogy of works inspired by the writings of Jean Cocteau. In the first parts, Orphée and La Belle et la bête, Glass experimented with film and music – but for Les Enfants Terrible Glass ‘envisioned something different… singers and dancers would share centre stage’. This new production of Glass’s 1996 dance opera, part of the global festivities celebrating Glass’s 80th birthday, is choreographed and directed by the acclaimed choreographer Javier De Frutos.
