Seven angels have fallen through space and time for so long, they have forgotten why. Inspired by Paradise Lost, Seven Angels interprets the themes of John Milton’s masterpiece for a modern audience
Featuring seven singers and a live chamber orchestra, Luke Bedford’s music is dark but seductive, tense but lyrical and integrates both solo voices and choral textures. The opera’s post-apocalyptic landscape is realised by Japanese artist Tadasu Takamine.
