New Music Biennial: The Crossing by Roopa Panesar

Sun 24 April 2022

The Crossing is created by eminent sitarist Roopa Panesar with pianist Al MacSween and sound designer Camilo Tirado, and commissioned and produced by Opera North. Agile improvisers, the two musicians offer a deep immersion in the changing emotional states generated by Indian classical raag, through exchanges between themselves and the audience. Their sound surrounds the listeners, creating an intimate environment inspired by traditional Hindustani 'baithak' concerts, and offering a collective movement from loss towards renewal.




The bar will open at 12.30pm
