Composer Nico Muhly, Greek drama, Four Corners

The classical composer Nico Muhly has worked with Philip Glass, written film scores including The Reader, collaborated with Björk and Antony and the Johnsons, and written a full-scale opera, Two Boys. Muhly discusses Sentences, his new song cycle on Alan Turing with a libretto by Adam Gopnik. Recently Kristin Scott Thomas has played Electra, Juliette Binoche, Antigone and Helen McCrory, Medea. Tonight The Oresteia opens at the Almeida Theatre in London - one of four productions of the trilogy this year - which opens a festival of Greek drama at the theatre. Kirsty Lang talks to Rupert Goold, the artistic director responsible for the festival, Blanche McIntyre, who will be directing The Oresteia in Manchester, and Paul Cartledge, the distinguished scholar of Greek drama, about the power of these plays written millennia ago and their relevance today. A new film Four Corners is a drama set against a backdrop of gang culture and violence in South Africa's Cape Flats. Writer Lindsay Johns reviews. And Kevin LeGendre considers the art of the spoken interaction between the musical performer and the audience in a live show. Presenter Kirsty Lang Producer Jerome Weatherald.…read more
