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."
Surrey Opera is proud to present this world premiere, with professional principals and orchestra, directed and conducted by Jonathan Butcher.
