7/7/09, ENO

Interminable opera byKaija Sariaaho in which nothing happens to the accompaniment of characterless, tuneless music. The central characters, a crusader/troubadour and a lady called Clemence, never meet; the Pilgrim reflects on their (non) relationship.

I think we went to see it because it was designed and choreographed by the chap who did Cirque du Soleil, Daniele Finzi Pasca, and the singing characters were accompanied by two doppelgangers. There were lots of screens and floaty banners.

We left at the half.
