Details

RADIUS OPERA presents:

THE FIRE OF OLYMPUS or, ON STICKING IT TO THE MAN

AN OPERA IN FILM (world premiere)

_The Fire Of Olympus_ or, _On Sticking It To The Man_ is a radical re-imagining of Greek mythology. An opera presented in film, it tells the legends of Prometheus and Pandora, and the theft of the secret of Fire from Zeus, the all-powerful President of Olympus, by prankster-led political activists. Resonant with and relevant to the modern world and contemporary issues, it is filled with drama, passion, politics, tragedy, and comedy.

Blurring the boundaries between real-world locations, abstract art-film, and live theatre, this unique film is developed from the 2019 production and live tour by Yorkshire-based mavericks Radius Opera. A stage spectacular, it features a cast of virtuoso singers and Baroque-inspired music, together with the combined voices of over 1,000 volunteers drawn from choirs across the north of England.

6:45PM – Prior to the screening, there will be a Q&A with a panel including composer Tim Benjamin, Radius Opera’s music director Ellie Slorach, plus special guests.

 CHARLOTTE HOATHER (Pandora), SOPHIE DICKS (Prometheus), ELSPETH MARROW (Epimetheus), MICHAEL JONES (Hephaestus), ROBERT GARLAND (Zeus)
RADIUS OPERA ORCHESTRA with ELLIE SLORACH (music director), ALEX ROBINSON (harpsichord)
