Peter Sellars directs a haunting dramatization of Orlando di Lassos Tears of St Peter: renaissance madrigals of sorrow and remorse, given a contemporary setting of quietly shattering power.

The deadliest arrows that pierced his heart were the eyes of the Lord, when they fixed on him

How does any human come to terms with betraying a loved one or with their own flawed nature? Peter Sellars takes these themes and Lassos heart-breaking music imagining the suffering of St Peter as the starting point for a theatrical meditation grounded in our own shared contemporary experience. And if youve seen any of his collaborations with Simon Rattle and the LSO, youll know exactly how revelatory this could be.
