George Benjamin: Written on Skin, first performance in Finland

Written on Skin has, in a decade or so, won itself a reputation as one of the greatest contemporary operas. Though basically a tragic triangle love story “written on skin”, it also revolves round a book written and illustrated on parchment. The events take place in the age of chivalry and troubadours 800 years ago, with comments made by angels from the present-day perspective.
