Benjamin: Written on Skin; Lessons in Love & Violence

This collection consists of George Benjamin and Martin Crimps two award-winning full-length operas, in visually stunning productions by critically acclaimed director Katie Mitchell. Written on Skin has been hailed as magic and irresistible the best opera written over the last twenty years (Le Monde). It tells the story of a cruel and powerful Protector who asks a mysterious Boy to create an illuminated book to celebrate his wealth and family. He invites the Boy into his home, little realizing that this will lead to a journey of startling, joyful and ultimately tragic self-discovery for his oppressed and much younger wife Agns. Drawing on the real-life relationship between Edward II and Piers Gaveston, Lessons in Love and Violence explores how personal relationships can have fatal political consequences. The King lives in a close but uneasy relationship with his wife Isabel, their two children and his lover Gaveston. When the King banishes his military advisor Mortimer, he sets off a chain of devastating events. The composer conducts two superb international casts, including soprano Barbara Hannigan, who appears in the leading roles of Agns and Isabel.
