Rumi Passion

Lead artist - Rolf Hind                 

Drawing on the life and philosophy of Sufi poet and mystic, Rumi, this piece – a development from Rolf’s previous work with Mahogany, the meditation opera, Lost in Thought – might take the form of an epic parable or staged oratorio, with a strong element of dance, as befits the dervish tradition, and instruments drawn from different traditions placed centre stage as protagonists in the drama.
