BLUE ELECTRIC: the opera

RADA Studios, 16 Chenies St, London - 7:00 pm

Produced by Tom Smail and Alba Arikha
Paris, 1980’s. A rebellious adolescent. Holocaust and exile. Cafés and nightclubs, shifty boyfriends and broken friendships, BLUE ELECTRIC charts a young woman’s search for identity in the shadow of her artist father’s hidden history. Based on the acclaimed memoir Major/Minor and directed by Academy Award winner Hugh Hudson, this opera explores the effects of trauma on family life. With a powerful contemporary score, this is a universal story of loss, love and what it means to be alive.
