About the event

‘The Opera Group has broadened the definition of what opera is, who it involves, where it happens and which aspects of humanity it addresses’ - Richard Morrison, BBC Music Magazine

In a London suburb, four young men and women are preparing a terrorist act. As their mission draws closer they are disturbed by the ghost of Babur, first Mughal Emperor -poet and warrior. Challenging their convictions, he calls them ‘children playing in battle, in love with death‘, but what are his motives for interfering?

Combining contemporary poetry by Jeet Thayil with original music by Edward Rushton and directed by Associate Director of the Royal Opera House, John Fulljames, this haunting story tells the tale of four young people grappling with their beliefs, the consequences of their actions, and their feelings for each other.

The Opera Group presents this work as part of their ongoing commitment to bring together the best of music and theatre to create intriguing new productions.
