Kris Defoort invited to compose an opera for Feria Musica

From March 2013 on, Feria Musica will start researching on a project where circus meets opera.

The music will be composed by Kris Defoort for five improvisers and four baroque singers, while the staging will be entrusted to Fabrice Murgia and the writing to French author and playwright Laurent Gaude.

Eight acrobats embody a passage to a hostile environment, inspired by the travel of migrants when crossing a border.

The creation is planned for the summer of 2014.
