007 – Surrey Opera – The Life To Come

Interviews with Composer Louis Mander and Conductor Jonathan Butcher.
When Louis Mander and Stephen Fry set about creating this opera, Louis found himself “fired up with passionate musical ideas; arching melodies, rich harmonies and orchestral colours which arose from the highly exotic and erotic subject matter of E. M. Forster’s immaculately beautiful short story The Life to Come.”
Stephen describes it as “one of E. M. Forster’s most beguiling and brilliant short stories? It speaks of colonialism, sexuality, love and religion in unique ways.”
