Exterminating Angel

Director: Tom Cairns; Composer: Thomas Ades; Conductor: Thomas Ades

Thomas Ades will be conducting the UK premiere of his latest opera, 'The Exterminating Angel'.

The opera is inspired by inspired by Luis Bunuel's iconic film, which tells the story of an exclusive dinner after a night at the opera. When the guests discover that no one can get out, and no one can get in, their oh-so elegant party quickly dissolves into anarchy.

One guest dies, and two more kill themselves in a suicide pact. But what will happen to the survivors?


Thomas AdesThomas Ades is a conductor and composer of operas and orchestral works. He has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Royal Concertgebouw.
