2011

Seven angels have fallen through space and time for so long, they have forgotten why. Coming to rest on a desert landscape, they imagine the creation of a legendary garden that once flourished there and its destruction from greed and neglect.

Inspired by John Milton's Paradise Lost, Seven Angels interprets Milton's themes for a modern audience facing up to the urgent challenges of a changing climate and ever-depleting resources.

Seven Angels is the first opera from the composer Luke Bedford, with words by Glyn Maxwell. Featuring seven singers and a live chamber orchestra, Bedford’s music is dark but lyrical and integrates solo voices and choral textures. The opera’s post-apocalyptic landscape is realised by Japanese visual artist Tadasu Takamine.

Seven Angels is a co-production between The Opera Group, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, with ROH2 and Tramway, Glasgow.

The premiere was at CBSO Centre Birmingham, 17 June 2011. The tour included the Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House, the Latitude Festival, the Brighton Corn Exchange, the Tramway in Glasgow and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
