A Night at the Opera with Jun Cen

Jun Cen’s recent piece for the New Yorker on Kaija Saariaho’s, work ‘Innocence’ exudes all the power and truth of the opera itself. Taking place over to parallel periods of time, it deals with wounds of the past and the act of letting go. Jun has been able to get to grips with the complexity of the narrative beautifully.  Again. Inspirational stuff.
