The UK premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s Song from the Uproar – the story of a woman who redefined the possible, performed by mezzo-soprano, the BBC Singers and musicians from the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Isabelle Eberhardt (1877–1904) was an explorer, nomad, journalist, novelist, passionate romantic, Sufi, and one of the most unique and unusual women of her era. Missy Mazzoli’s chamber opera evokes her short, untrammelled life in words and music of uncompromising beauty and imagination.
Coming at the end of a day of Full Immersion in Mazzoli’s creative world, it’s an occasion in its own right: an overdue UK premiere of a uniquely resonant and haunting music-drama by one of the 21st century’s most original creative minds. Sofi Jeannin conducts the BBC Singers.
This performance will finish at approximately 9.40pm, with no interval
Produced by the BBC Symphony Orchestra
