Written On Skin

A dark, sensual opera, hailed as one of the best of the 20th Century

A husband, a wife, an artist, and a passion with consequences beyond imagination. Declared as the best opera written in the past two decades by Le Monde, this concert version – re-uniting performers from the Royal Opera’s sensational 2013 production – is an unmissable climax to the Barbican’s George Benjamin Focus.
