Folie à Deux will premiere in Norway and Sweden

Folie à Deux: A madness shared by two will premiere in Bergen, Norway on 11 and 12 March as part of the Borealis Festival in partnership with Bergen National Opera. The work will then debut in Sweden at Stockholm’s Kulturhuset on 14 March.

This opera had a preview gig last December at Spitafields Winter Festival, which featured the whole musical interpretation; this however will be the first time it will be staged as a full production, including light and sound design.

This piece explores the voyage of a two lovers through the shared psychosis called ‘folie a deux’, where a delusion is transmitted from one person to another. Emily Hall’s songs, which are embedded with classical, jazz and folk influences, evoke madness and loneliness within a relationship.

Folie à Deux is a collaborative project between Mahogany Opera group, award-winning composer Emily Hall and Icelandic lyricist and writer Sjon. 

Folie à Deux will also be presented in London the 6 and 7 of June at the Spitafields Summer Festival.
