Between Worlds, the highly anticipated operatic debut from Tansy Davies to a libretto by Nick Drake,
opens at London's Barbican Theatre on 11 April. A bold and highly individual response to the events
of 9/11, the opera, commissioned by English National Opera, brings Davies and Drake together with
acclaimed director Deborah Warner. A disparate group of individuals is trapped high up in one of the
Twin Towers, caught between earth and heaven, life and death. As the work progresses it opens out to
a universal panorama of human beings in extremis.
Drake's libretto deftly weaves together a wide variety of texts, from actual communications sent on the
morning of 9/11 to passages from the Latin Requiem Mass.
