Commissioned & Produced by ROH2 In an adventurous new collaboration with minimalist composer Graham Fitkin, Jasmin Vardimon MBE returns to the Royal Opera House to direct and choreograph a compelling new short opera entitled Home.

In her very first creation using live music on stage, Vardimon directs a beautiful and hauntingly eerie new piece exploring concepts of ‘home’ and how we strive to shield our homes from invasive and oppressive forces.

Performed by a company of fourteen with innovative animation by Jesse Collett, Home presents JVC dancers Est├ęban Fourmi, Aoi Nakamura and Luke Burrough, with singers Melanie Pappenheim and Victoria Couper, and The Graham Fitkin Band featuring nine musicians live on stage.

PREMIERE: 20 April 2012 at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House London
