Stockhausen, helicopters and Ex Cathedra

Birmingham Opera Company and LOCOG today announced the first ever complete performance of Stockhausen’s opera Mittwoch aus Licht in Birmingham in August, as part of the London 2012 Festival. What does this have to do with Ex Cathedra? The opera is in four parts, and we will be performing Part I, the meeting of the first World Parliament. It’s going to be a spectacular occasion, and given the complexity of the piece, it may be a long time before there is another complete performance. Read more at the BBC and Birmingham Opera Company.
